Peritoneal Dialysis uses a cycle machine that can be set for the night period.
Peritoneal Dialysis is a no-needle treatment that can be done at home, either with a care partner or by the patient alone.
Professional dialysis RN visits are made to ensure safe dialysis treatments and provide supplies, administer medications at your home.
In peritoneal dialysis, waste products are removed in a manner different from hemodialysis. Blood does NOT leave the body.
Instead, a tube called a PD catheter is placed in the belly. Dialysis occurs via the flow of sterile fluid through the lining of the belly (called the peritoneum). In this way, blood is cleaned inside the body.
