The Al Shifa staff rotates on an on-call schedule to provide emergent hemodialysis treatments for those patients who may come to the Emergency Room in fluid overload, electrolyte imbalance or other problems, which may require emergency treatment.

At Al Shifa Hospital, three types of kidney dialysis provides patients with life-saving treatments:

  • Haemodialysis
  • Peritoneal dialysis
  • Nocturnal dialysis

During hemodialysis, an artificial kidney machine carries out the vital functions the kidneys can no longer perform. In this procedure, a person is connected to the machine by plastic tubing that attaches to special blood vessels in the arm or leg. The treatment can be at home or at a dialysis unit.

During peritoneal dialysis, waste products from the blood are flushed from the body with fluid instilled and drained through a catheter that has been surgically placed in the abdomen.

During nocturnal dialysis, patients undergo training to learn how to self-administer hemodialysis at night during sleep. Nocturnal dialysis typically occurs for six consecutive nights. With this prolonged dialysis, patients have no dietary restrictions; take fewer medications and are sometimes taken off blood pressure medication; have more energy and feel better; and have more free time for work or leisure activities during the day.

Thiruvananthapuram, India Destination Overview

Medical Tourism  
The Corporate hospital sector in India now facilitates Medical tourism, whichcan be broadly defined as provision of 'cost effective' private medical care in collaboration with the tourism industry for patients needing surgical and other forms of specialized treatment. It is a joint venture by the medical and tourism sector. A broad spectrum of medical services is covered in Medical or Health tourism and it has become a common form of vacationing. Fun and relaxation are mixed together with wellness and healthcare.  Get away from your daily routine and come into a varied peaceful surrounding! Enjoy being close to the beach and the mountains at the same time receive medical attention that will help you improve your life in terms of health and general well being. Many people from the developed world come to India for the rejuvenation promised by yoga and Ayurvedic massage, but few consider it a destination for hip replacement or brain surgery. But now, a nice mix of top-class medical expertise at attractive prices is helping a growing number of foreign patients to consider India as a world-class center for health and well being.
The rapidly expanding Indian corporate hospital sector, high quality expertise of medical professionals, backed by the fast improving equipment and nursing facilities, and above all, the cost-effectiveness of the packages have led to India becoming a preferred medical destination. In addition to the increasingly top class medical care, a big draw for foreign patients is also the very minimal or hardly any waitlist as is common in European or American hospitals.
