The Department of Dialysis in Allied Care Experts Medical Center Valenzuela, offers 2 kinds of treatment, Hemodialysis and Peritoneal Dialysis.
is a treatment that can clean the blood. A filter is used to remove wastes from the patient. A membrane (thin layer of tissue) keeps blood separate from a special fluid called dialysate. The membrane has tiny pores in it that let wastes and water out. Protein and other large cells your body needs to keep, are too big to fit through the pores.
Another treatment given to a patient as a cleansing fluid flows through a tube (catheter) into part of your abdomen. The lining of your abdomen (peritoneum) acts as a filter and removes waste products from your blood. After a set period of time, the fluid with the filtered waste products flows out of your abdomen and is discarded.
ACEMC VALENZUELA, offers to train you and your immediate relative. We will also provide your machine and supplies as per Z package from Philhealth.
For hemodialysis, you need a vascular access by having fistula or graft. At first, a Intra-jugular catheter – a tube in your neck that goes into your heart, is inserted into you.
The more HD you get, the better you may feel and the longer you may live. Here in ACEMC – Valenzuela, we have a total of 38 HD machines.
Hemoperfusion (HP) was introduced as a medical procedure in the 1960s. Hemoperfusion, as a tool for blood cleansing, has many benefits over other non-selective forms of extracorporeal detoxification (eg, plasmapheresis, and plasma filtration) due to advances in discovering new adsorbents, as well as changes in the initially proposed adsorbents.
Hemoperfusion was shown to be capable of removing harmful substances like cytokines and reducing their inflammatory effects in other diseases.
Body Composition Monitor (BMC) measures over hydration in patients undergoing dialysis. The BCM is an innovative analysis system that enables fast, accurate and non-invasive fluid status monitoring. In addition, the BCM distinguishes muscle mass from pathological fluid overload thereby allowing the detection of malnutrition in patients with kidney failure.
The BCM provides the following information: Hydration status, Urea distribution volume including precise determination of dialysis dose (Kt/V), Total body water, extracellular and intracellular water, Lean tissue index, Fat tissue index and Body cell mass.
