In order to meet criteria for this program, a patient must have a different terminal diagnosis or forego dialysis.
Our End Stage Renal Disease Program aims to help patients with:
- Uremia Obtundation Care (reduced level of consciousness)
- Uremic Pruritus Management (itching caused by elevated urea in the blood)
Our goal for kidney failure is to manage symptoms and provide emotional support so patients can live as comfortably as possible. We can also provide help with symptoms such as:
- Shortness of breath
- Fluid retention
