After being ready with the above requirements, a patient need to get registered only through the listed hospitals for Cadaver Transplant (now-a-days called as Deceased Donor Transplant).

For the patients who are diagnosed with Kidney Problem and may later need to go for Dialysis, it would always better to get the Fistula fixed in hand. Let us understand it thoroughly. The function of Kidney is to purify blood and throw out the waste out of our body through urine. It means, the dialysis of blood is done naturally by our Kidney in our body. If the Kidney fails for any reason, it is obvious to gather the waste minerals and chemicals in our blood. This waste is measured by the level of Urea and Creatinine in our blood. The range of Creatinine in healthy person is between 1.. and 1…. is .
If it goes beyond 5, the patients may require dialysis by machine, if not controlled by medicines and diets. When we say that the patient is on dialysis, we mean that dialysis is done by the machine. This machine works as an Artificial Kidney for us. It takes the blood from our body through One Tube, filters it, and sends the purified blood in our body through another Tube. Fistula, which is inserted and set in our forearm by surgery, has two such ways to send and receive blood in machine. After the fistula is fixed in our body, it takes nearlbout 0 t 45 days to set and be ready to function. If the Fistula is not fixed in our body and the emergency of dialysis occurs (When the Creatinine is much more than the bearable level, say beyond 8, the patient is on fatal state and may require immediate dialysis), doctors have no other choice to insert Two Way Tubes through neck, hand or even leg for an artificial dialysis. This is painful for the patient and it does not last long. Doctors need to find another place(Nerve) in body after certain number of dialysis. That is why it is advisable for the prospective dialysis patients to have the Fistula done in advance.
