Artificial Kidney Unit
What is dialysis?
Dialysis is the method of removing waste products from the body, such as creatinine and urea, as well as excess fluid from the blood in case of kidney damage. The kidneys are one of the most important organs in the human body. They act as ‘filters’ that remove unwanted substances from the body. In addition, they regulate the balance of minerals and water and are responsible for the production of important hormones. Many factors can cause kidney damage, such as diabetes, hypertension, kidney stones, chronic kidney infections, genetic diseases, as well as certain drugs and toxic substances.
The Dialysis Department
The Artificial Kidney Unit is fully operational, has 15 beds and modern facilities for dialysis treatments and is staffed by experienced and specialized medical personnel, in order for dialysis patients travelling to Rhodes to feel safe during their holidays on the island, just like the patients of Rhodes. The scientific team of nephrologists at the Artificial Kidney Unit undertakes the treatment of patients with the utmost care, while the qualified nursing staff is available 24 hours a day to meet the needs of patients. The Unit also has a special separate room for patients with Hepatitis B/C and HIV
The Unit is equipped with the latest generation of Baxter (Gambro) Artis Physio devices. Through specially designed functions they can provide customized, top quality dialysis services (HD, on-line HDF), while monitoring key patient parameters (e.g. blood volume, arterial/renal pressure) and storing treatment data in the patient’s individual treatment record.
High standard dialysis is complemented by top quality consumables for optimal durability during treatment and is manufactured using materials that are both patient and environmentally friendly. We offer a range of state-of-the-art hemofilters manufactured by Baxter (Gambro) that meet specific requirements for various types of treatments and individual patient needs.
The water quality in our plant is protected through a modern reverse osmosis network, combined with special filters for cleaning the devices used and thorough system controls and monitoring. This ensures that the water used for solution production is extremely pure.
The use of special (citrate) solutions ensures high-quality, biocompatible dialysis, which contributes to the well-being of patients after the dialysis session.
Your vacation plan if you need Dialysis
