3. do you become breathless between dialysis ?
4. have they checked your cardiac function ?
5. on an average how much is your urine output per day?

No different solution required

Hello

Thanks for getting back

No different solution is required for the travel. In our institute we give something known as a 'transfer card' for travelling patients so that in case of an emergency it can produced to another hospital. I recommend you to get one as well.
