Renal Dialysis Centre
|About Us Our Services Contact Us Pamphlet|
End-stage renal disease (ESRD) is a chronic disease which requires patients to receive ongoing treatment for kidney failure. Haemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) are the most common treatments for patients suffering from ESRD to sustain kidney functions.
Established in 1983, the Renal Dialysis Centre has been providing comprehensive and high quality dialysis therapy and support services to ESRD patients. The Centre accepts referrals from doctors and overseas patients during their stay in Hong Kong. (click here to download Referral Form)
Managed by a well-coordinated health care team of Nephrologists and certified Renal Nurses, the Centre adheres to the highest standard of sanitary conditions and quality assurance protocols. The Centre is committed to acquiring the advanced equipment and new pharmaceutical products to achieve the best possible treatment outcome for patients and improving their quality of life.
Haemodialysis is a method of treatment for ESRD patients. It allows the blood of a patient to flow from the body via a vascular access into a machine with a haemodialyzer, which can remove body wastes and excess body fluids. The clean blood is then returned to the body via the vascular access.
To control blood pressure and maintain a proper balance of electrolytes in the body, the patient is required to follow a rigid schedule to undergo dialysis two or three times a week. Each visit takes four hours or more. During dialysis, the patient still can perform activities such as reading, sleeping and watching TV.
About Peritoneal Dialysis
Peritoneal dialysis is another method of treatment for ESRD patients. It eliminates body wastes and removes excess body fluid by introducing high concentration of glucose dialysis solution into the peritoneal (abdominal) cavity via a plastic tube (catheter). By means of osmosis and diffusion, the patient’s body wastes and excess body fluids will be drawn from the tiny blood vessels in the peritoneal membrane into the peritoneal cavity. The catheter then drains out the fluids together with the waste products from the body.
|For the patients from Hospital Authority Hospitals|
|Since October 2004, the Centre has reached an agreement with the Hospital Authority (HA) to perform insertion of Tenckhoff catheter, creation of arteriovenous fistula or Gortex graft for patients from HA hospitals at an agreed charge which is lower than the usual charge. For obtaining this service, these patients need to be referred by HA doctors.|
|Renal Nursing Care and Clinical Support|
