ABSTRACT

The burden of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is increasing in alarming proportion all over the world.  According to World Health organization (WHO), CKD is 12th leading cause of death and 17th cause of disability. In India, an estimated 100-120 per million population reach Chronic kidney disease stage-V. In India due to lack of financial resources, lack of trained manpower & infrastructure leads to severe strain on existing health policies in the light of the increasing burden of  Chronic kidney disease. Maintenance dialysis is a well-recognized modality of treating patients having end stage renal disease. Good quality of life and survival on maintenance dialysis depends on various factors but unfortunately in our country, the quality of dialysis delivered to patients can vary from center to center that may affect  the health  of hemodialysis patients. This study was undertaken to analyze the post hemodialysis effects in patients with ESRD.A Prospective observational study was conducted on total of 150 out-patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis, in order to find out the post hemodialysis effects in chronic renal failure patients and patient information was collected accordingly. In this study most of the patients undergoing hemodialysis experienced hepatitis, arthropathy and disequilibrium effects after repeated hemodialysis process. We observed that people undergoing hemodialysis experiences severe side effects which can be minimized by creating awareness so that the life expectancy of the hemodialysis patients can be increased.

Keywords: End stage renal disease (ESRD), Chronic kidney disease (CKD), Hemodialysis  (HD),  Arteriovenous fistula (AV).
