New blood cleaning service available

130322 02c

A new hemodialysis center at the Siem Reap Provincial Hospital was inaugurated on March 8, and the hospital’s chairman, Kros Sarath, said the centre was sponsored by Japanese company Ly Pro and Japanese Rotary Clubs.

Hemodialysis is used to remove waste products from the blood when kidneys are in a state of renal failure.

Kros Sarath said there are now three blood cleaning machines in the centre, and the plan is to eventually install ten of these lifesaving machines.

He added that the machines will be a great service to residents suffering from conditions such as maple syrup urine disease and blood pressure disease. He said, “These machines are going to ensure that patients’ blood is cleaned routinely.”

Deputy Siem Reap governor Song Roha said that before the machines were installed, local residents who suffered with maple syrup urine disease or blood pressure disease had to go to Phnom Penh.
