Dialysis

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This four-page handout educates people about dialysis, which is a treatment used to remove extra fluids and wastes from the body when the kidneys stop working well. It defines the two types of dialysis as hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, and explains how each process works. For hemodialysis, the document describes treatment with an artificial kidney and identifies the three three main access sites as AV fistula, graft, and central catheter. It discusses how dialysate is put into the abdomen through a catheter with peritoneal dialysis, and identifies its two main types as Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD) and Continuous Cycling Peritoneal Dialysis (CCPD).
