Dialysis is a very important procedure, as its life saving in most of the sever kidney disease. my grandma has also undergone dialysis in the hospital, 3-4 times. now the procedure is advanced she is getting dialysis at home only, even the price is affordable. its good that these types of procedures are also done in home.

Seema, you have not mentioned about the rules of starting the unit.The protocol for dialysis unit is to get the approval from the local medical authority.It can be applied as a nursing home license or as a hospital license. Are you talking about the portable one or do you want to set up your own center ?if you wish you can check with the doctors in hospitals by calling any doctor from the database here or even doctors on this site who can give you more details about the administrative procedure.

My wife is suffering from CRF for at least 3 years. Her present creatine leve is 7.5, Blood Urea 169, Hb% 5.9, Sugar (fasting) 89 and BP varying between 130/80 and 160/90. Her other parameters, like Lipid profile, are more or less normal. Now, I wish to have Kidney transplantation at your place for my wife, instead of giving Dialysis at regular intervals. I am ready to donate my kidney. My blood group is O+ and my wife s is A+. How to proceed in this case ? Wish to know your protocol in this case.

My father had colon surgery 2 months ago and has been in the hospital 4 times with complications. After the incision ruptured and he became septic, he had emergency surgery and was given a colostomy until the colon is healed. He is now in the hospital because of a seizure which was caused my his electrolytes being out of balance. This is the 2nd time in a month he has been admitted due to a seizure, out of balance electrolytes and poor kidney function. The doctor said his kidneys are not working properly because the location of the colostomy is expelling the waste before the liquids are being absorbed in the body. It looks like they are going to start dialysis for now until his kidneys are working properly. All other test looks good and readings look good. Is this a normal practice? Many thanks!
