Department of Nephrology

Magnum Hospital has the state of the art Department of Nephrology with latest technology and experienced staff. It has 3 haemodialysis stations. We have best quality RO system for the best water quality (AAMI Standard) for the dialysis patients.

We also have the facility for doing bedside dialysis in the ICU itself for the critically ill ICU patient.

We are regularly doing SLEDD (Slow Low Efficiency Daily Dialysis) for the needful ICU patients particularly suffering from septic shock.

We have NIBPs for continuous blood pressure monitoring and cardiac monitors for continuous cardiac monitoring of patients during haemodialysis.

Our unit in Magnum Hospital vows to provide best and 'Evidence-Based' management to all the nephrology patients.

What are the procedures done in nephrology department?

  • 1. Clinical Nephrology services
  • 2. Maintainance Haemodialysis
  • 3. Peritoneal dialysis
  • 4. SLEDD (Newer hemodialysis for ICU patients)
  • 5. Kidney biopsy
  • 6. Plasmapheresis

Does initiation of dialysis mean life long treatment?

No, Dialysis does not determine life long treatment. If kidney failure is irreversible (chronic kidney disease), then only treatment is life long. Many acute renal failure patients may require dialysis for a short time and then once their kidneys recover, they are off dialysis.

What is the frequency of Maintenance haemodialysis(MHD)?

As our kidneys work 24 hours X 7 days, nowadays, the concept is coming for daily dialysis. However, conventionally, 3 times a week for 4 hours each time is considered good dialysis.


What is Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal dialysis (CAPD)?

It is an alternative form of dialysis where patient fills in his/her belly with dialysate (special solution) through a tube in their belly and empties it after some time. They do this 3-4 times in a day. Each cycle takes about 30-45 minutes.


Which dialysis is better, haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis?

Some patients are more suited for haemo and some for peritoneal. Nephrologist can help in this regard. Most of the patients are fit for either and have a choice between the two.

What is SLEDD?

It is a newer modality of hemodialysis. This form of dialysis is special form, which is done for critically sick patients in ICUs who cannot tolerate conventional dialysis.

Does patients on dialysis have food and fluid restrictions?

Generally dialysis patients are advised low potassium and low phosphate containing diet with adequate protein. Fluid (water) restrictions are depending on patients' urine output. However, these restrictions are individual and many patients may not require these restrictions. So, the restrictions are individualized for best health of patients.

Which form of treatment is best for end-stage renal disease (ESRD)?

Best treatment for patients having ESRD is kidney transplantation. It gives better survival and best quality of life. If this is not possible for some reason, then patients can be managed with dialysis.


What are the requirements for kidney transplantation?

A matched donor, fit ESRD patient, financial support, and the transplant team.

Does donor have any risk of life or kidney failure?

Usually donors are selected after a battery of tests to rule out any disease in them. They are 'healthy' persons and it has been shown that they live longer than other 'healthy' individuals (not because of donation). They certainly have the risk of anesthesia.

How long does the transplant patient need to continue on drugs?

Life long.

Are there restrictions for transplant patient, can they work?

Initially there are few restrictions to avoid acquiring infections but later after 3-6 months, the risk of infections are low and yes, they can continue with their jobs.
