Peritoneal Dialysis Treatment in Navi Mumbai

Peritoneal Dialysis

Peritoneal dialysis involves introducing 1.5-3 liters of dialysis fluid into the peritoneal cavity using a peritoneal catheter or tube. This solution is permitted to remain for a set duration, typically 3-4 hours, facilitating the elimination of metabolic waste products. Subsequently, a separate tube connected to a bag is utilized to drain the fluid from the body which now contains metabolic waste products. This process is repeated every 3-4 hours to maintain the effectiveness of the treatment. We are one of the best peritoneal dialysis hospitals in Navi Mumbai

Peritoneal dialysis is further classified into two types:

  • Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis( CAPD)
  • Automated peritoneal dialysis (APD)

In this process, roughly two liters of sterile, isotonic dialysis solution are instilled and retained for around 4-6 hours within your peritoneal cavity. Metabolic waste products move from your peritoneal capillaries to the dialysis machine, following a gradient from high concentration to low concentration. The solution is subsequently drained, and new peritoneal fluid is introduced in a continuous four-times-daily pattern. Throughout this treatment, you are able to move and engage in regular daily activities.

CAPD proves especially beneficial for pediatric patients. It serves as the primary intervention for adults with residual renal function and elderly individuals experiencing cardiovascular instability. The extended utilization of peritoneal dialysis may be restricted by your healthcare provider due to potential instances of bacterial infections and harm to the peritoneal membrane.

Automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) bears resemblance to CAPD; however, it employs a mechanical device for fluid exchanges throughout the night. This allows you the freedom to engage in daytime activities since you are required to perform only a single exchange during the day.

  • Hemodialysis necessitates a brief treatment, while for peritoneal dialysis, a longer time may be required
  • Hemodialysis is mostly done in hospitals and dialysis centres, whereas peritoneal dialysis must be done at home
  • Hemodialysis offers superior clearance compared to peritoneal dialysis
  • The primary complications of hemodialysis encompass hypotension, disequilibrium syndrome, muscle cramps, nausea, vomiting, and fever. Key complications of peritoneal dialysis include peritoneal infection, non-peritoneal infections resulting from catheter use, weight gain, and metabolic disturbances.
