It involves surgery that implants a PD catheter into the abdomen. It filters the blood through the peritoneum, which is an abdominal membrane. A fluid called dialysate is infused into the peritoneum, which absorbs excess waste.
Once the waste has been drawn, the dialysate is removed from the abdomen. The process takes a few hours and is repeated several times in a day. The important types of peritoneal dialysis are continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), which must be performed while the patient is awake, continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis (CCPD) which is conducted while the patient is asleep.
