Il s’agit d’un type de dialyse rapide qui élimine de l’organisme de l’enfant les toxines et le liquide qui se sont accumulés dans les 24 à 48 heures précédentes.</p><h2>À retenir</h2> <ul><li>L’hémodialyse à l’hôpital est une dialyse opérée en trois ou quatre heures en milieu hospitalier.</li> <li>En général, votre enfant sera dialysé dans un service ambulatoire à l’hôpital trois ou quatre fois par semaine.</li> <li>Dans le cas de l’hémodialyse à l’hôpital, il n’y a pas d’équipement à conserver à la maison et l’enfant a la possibilité de rencontrer d’autres patients et a un accès immédiat à des soins médicaux.</li> <li>Votre enfant doit s’absenter de l’école pour aller à ses rendez-vous à l’hôpital, suivre un régime alimentaire strict et prendre plus de médicaments qu’avec d’autres types de dialyse.</li></ul><h2>À quelle fréquence mon enfant a-t-il besoin d’une hémodialyse à l’hôpital?</h2> <p>Votre enfant est dialysé dans un service hospitalier ambulatoire (les patients n’y restent pas pour la nuit). En général, la dialyse est effectuée trois à quatre fois par semaine, congés compris. Chaque séance dure trois ou quatre heures. Vous pouvez rester aux côtés de votre enfant pendant le traitement.</p><h2>Éléments à considérer avant d’opter pour l’hémodialyse à l’hôpital</h2> <p>La dialyse à l’hôpital vous fait porter moins de responsabilités, mais elle peut se répercuter sur d’autres domaines de la vie de votre enfant. Avant de décider si la dialyse à l’hôpital convient à votre enfant, veuillez considérer les éléments suivants.</p> <h3>Effet de l’hémodialyse à l’hôpital sur le quotidien de l’enfant</h3> <ul><li>Votre enfant devra être dialysé selon un horaire fixe chaque semaine.</li> <li>Votre enfant manquera beaucoup l’école pour recevoir le traitement.</li> <li>Votre enfant devra suivre un régime alimentaire strict, boissons comprises.</li> <li>Votre enfant devra prendre plus de médicaments que s’il était sous dialyse péritonéale ou sous hémodialyse à domicile</li></ul> <h3>Effet de l’hémodialyse à l’hôpital sur le quotidien de la famille</h3> <ul><li>Vous ou un autre membre de votre famille devrez vous absenter du travail pour être aux côtés de votre enfant pendant les séances de dialyse.</li> <li>Vous devrez vous déplacer à l’hôpital et prendre en charge les frais de transport afférents, comme les frais d’essence, de stationnement ou de transport en commun. </li></ul> <h3>Comment votre enfant se sentira-t-il pendant et après l’hémodialyse à l’hôpital?</h3> <ul><li>Il est possible que votre enfant se sente mal (étourdissements, crampes, maux de tête et nausées) pendant la dialyse.</li> <li>Votre enfant aura moins d’énergie et aura besoin de plus de temps pour récupérer après chaque séance.</li></ul><h2>À l’hôpital SickKids</h2><p>Le service de dialyse de SickKids est ouvert du lundi au samedi et propose des séances de dialyse le matin ou l’après-midi.</p><p>Votre enfant peut prendre un repas pendant la séance de dialyse. Si vous le souhaitez, il peut également bénéficier d’un accompagnement assuré par un enseignant du Toronto District School Board qui l’aidera à suivre à l’école. Votre enfant peut aussi avoir accès, sur demande, à des services de physiothérapie.</p><p>Pour plus de renseignements ou pour une visite guidée du service de dialyse, veuillez composer le 416-813-7563.<br></p>
