Recently there has been an addition of four dialysis machines at the haemodialysis centre of the Government Wenlock Hospital. The centre had eight dialysis machines and four more machines were donated between February and June this year. As many as 164 patients with renal problems, including 112 from below poverty line category, undergo dialysis at the centre. While 74 patients undergo three dialysis sessions per week, there are five patients who undergo two sessions per week. One machine caters to five patients and each dialysis session is of four hours. The centre also does occasional dialysis sessions to those admitted in the hospital in case of poisoning, snake bite and those with obstructive uropathy. The hospital has placed four dialysis machines in the hospital’s COVID-19 block for dialysis for COVID-19 patients. In June, Rotary District 3181 Governor Ranganath Bhat handed over the fourth machine and material worth ₹18 lakh for the hospital’s ICU to DC K.V. Rajendra.
