The Dialysis Unit


The Dialysis Unit treats children with end-stage renal failure by peritoneal dialysis or hemodialysis. Peritoneal dialysis is preferable as it is performed through the exchange of fluids in the abdominal cavity, is suitable for any age, and allows the child to connect to the dialysis machine at home and even while asleep. Hemodialysis on the other hand is conducted through the large blood vessels, requiring the child come to the hospital at least three times a week for 4 hours.
