The team at Apollo Dialysis will provide all the necessary training, as well as a technician to assist them with every session
Apollo Dialysis Clinics has launched home hemodialysis services in Bengaluru and Chennai. The service allows patients to have safe, convenient and hassle-free dialysis at home by setting up a dedicated dialysis machine for the patient. All that a patient needs is a small, separate room with air conditioning facilities to ensure temperature control, a running water supply unit and a system to maintain hygiene.
The team at Apollo Dialysis will provide all the necessary training, as well as a technician to assist them with every session. Once they opt for this, there is no longer any need to worry about the risk of infection, because they do not have to travel each time to a hospital and be inconvenienced due to time, distance or expense involved. It also ensures that the patient need not postpone, skip or avoid any sessions for fear of stepping out in a crowded space, or even travel long distances for each session.
The home hemodialysis will provide the same world-class dialysis facilities at home, without the constant effort or concern of having to visit the hospital or clinic at the scheduled hour. This has been made possible by Apollo Dialysis Clinics, which has an impeccable track record, supported by state-of-the-art infrastructure, dedicated and experienced nephrologists, and well-trained technicians across 70 centres in 60 cities across India.
Speaking on the occasion of the launch, M Sudhakar Rao, Head, Apollo Dialysis Clinics, Bangalore said, “By launching the home hemodialysis for Bangalore and Chennai, we want to help provide patients with an easy, secure and safe to perform dialysis. There will be zero risks of cross-infection among patients, as the entire unit is established at the patient’s house. Owing to the flexibility it gives, it will save time for the patients and their attendants at the same time give them access to world-class treatments in the safety of their home. At Apollo, we strongly believe in giving the best care to our patients and by launching these services in Bengaluru and Chennai, we aim to give safe and optimum dialysis care to the patients.”
Dr Venkatesh, Consultant Nephrologist, Apollo Dialysis Clinics, Chennai commenting on the launch and the success of home hemodialysis services said, “This is an exclusive service which will help the patients lead a better life, and we have seen it work successfully in other cities. It will come as good news for all those patients who deal with the risk every time, they visit the centre especially now due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.”
