What is in-hospital dialysis?
In-hospital dialysis is a treatment which typically takes place under emergency circumstances and in hospitals on an in-patient basis. Under these circumstances, a clinician will prescribe dialysis in one of four primary methods, should it be required:
Sustained low-efficiency dialysis
Continuous renal replacement therapy
Slow continuous ultrafiltration
If you are a dialysis patient
You will most likely have an existing dialysis access site. Your dialysis site will be assessed, and if it is viable, it will be used as the connection to the dialysis machine. A catheter can also be used.
Considerations for in-hospital dialysis
Quality care by NRC specialists
Your hospital dialysis treatment will be provided by a specialised dialysis practitioner, ensuring you receive care that is safe and delivered with compassion.
Consistency in care
You do not have to be concerned that the dialysis care delivered by the acute renal team, will be different to the usual chronic dialysis care provided by your usual renal expert.
Hospital Ts and Cs may apply
In-hospital dialysis is an emergency form of dialysis taking place in a hospital, under an in-patient setting. You need to be familiar with the hospital terms and conditions that apply to patient care.
You will have specific dietary requirements that will be communicated to your in-hospital care team for regulating in hospital.
