HEMODIALYSIS UNIT IN THE MEDICAL INTENSIVE CARE UNIT
Acute and Chronic Renal Failure needing Renal Replacement Therapy (RRT) often accompanies and may occur because of and in conjunction with pulmonary and other medical conditions. In the past, In-patients of the Lung Center of the Philippines requiring RRT had to be conducted to NKTI or other institutions to avail of this procedure. In order to serve its patients better, the Lung Center of the Philippines has allocated two (2) beds in the Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) to serve our In-patient clientele needing renal replacement therapy.
These beds are reserved for use by Inpatients presently confined in the Lung Center of the Philippines (Intensive Care Unit or General Ward) needing Renal Replacement Therapy (RRT).
The Hemodialysis Unit was inaugurated last January 21, 2019 and is at present fully functional. The unit is Headed by a duly accredited Nephrologist and 2 Certified Renal Nurses (CRN). The unit is open from 8AM to 8PM.
