What Is The Peritoneal Dialysis and Its Working Principle

2018-07-14 09:28

There are several kinds of peritoneal dialysis but two major ones are:

Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) and Automated Peritoneal Dialysis (APD).

Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) is the only type of peritoneal dialysis that is done without machines. You do this by yourself, usually four or five times a day at home and/or at work. You put a bag of dialysate (about two quarts) into your peritoneal cavity through the catheter. The dialysate stays there for about four or five hours before it is drained back into the bag and thrown away. This is called an exchange. You use a new bag of dialysate each time you do an exchange. While the dialysate is in your peritoneal cavity, you can go about your usual activities at work, at school or at home.

Automated Peritoneal Dialysis (APD) usually is done at home using a special machine called a cycler. This is similar to CAPD except that a number of cycles (exchanges) occur. Each cycle usually lasts 1-1/2 hours and exchanges are done throughout the night while you sleep.

From the above comments of peritoneal dialysis we can know that the PD is more convenient to most kidney patients than hemodialysis ,and the damage to your kidney is very little, but the disadvantage is the easy infection when you always do PD at home,and it will spend more time to affect your normal life.Then as a kidney doctor I suggest you should consider another alternative treatment to help you repair the damaged kidney cells and restore the kidney function ,then your kidney can work normally to discharge the toxins from the blood.The natural treatment with Chinese herbal medicine in Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine can help you realize the good treatment effect to get rid of dialysis ,more and more kidney patients are beneficial from it ,if you want to know more detailed information please contact us through the following message:
