The Institute's Central Clinical Hospital, Faculty of Medicine, USP, double the capacity to perform dialysis in patients hospitalized or in emergency. On the 17th of August, Tuesday, the hospital will open an expansion of the Acute Hemodialysis Unit, which will serve 24 patients per day in four shifts.

The area expansion and the acquisition of three more conventional machines, in six, must meet the current demand, ensure more comfort to patients with renal failure and eliminate the fifth round of dialysis, adopted to meet the demand of patients requiring dialysis.

According to Dr. Luis Yu, responsible for the high demand has required the continued functioning of the unit, resulting in work overload and marked wear of the equipment. In 2009 alone, there were over 500 per month in the hemodialysis unit, including during the night. Moreover, the sector has made over 250 hemodyalisis monthly, in different ICUs of the Central Institute.

With the restructuring of the area and doubling of hemodialysis machines, the unit will be able to attend to patients in four rounds, the fifth round only intended for emergencies.

The Acute Unit provides assistance to patients who for some reason, suddenly lost their kidney function and require dialysis to have chances of recovery and also to patients with chronic renal failure who are not undergoing dialysis.

For the improvements, the hospital has invested 272 thousand reais, approximately, with the purchase of equipment and renovation, which included works of revitalization, exchange of the hydraulic and electrical system review of water filters and air-conditioning and network adequacy treatment of water by osmosis.
