Frequently Asked Questions 


What is Dialysis and its advantage?

Dialysis is a method to mechanically filter the blood without the help of kidneys. Dialysis is performed to treat impaired or failed kidneys. There are two types of Dialysis:

Hemodialysis: In this process, hemodialyzer is used to eliminate the waste products from the blood by circulating the blood outside the body.

Peritoneal Dialysis: In this process, the blood is filtered with the help of the peritoneal catheter and a solution called dialysate. 

Peritoneal Dialysis is of two types: 

  • Automated Peritoneal Dialysis- A machine called cycler is used which will fill and empty the stomach with the dialysate for 3 to 5 times at night and you can begin your day with fresh dialysate in your stomach in Automated peritoneal dialysis 
  • Continuous ambulatory peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD)- The dialysate is left the whole night in the stomach in Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis.

  1. Improved overall health condition and quality of life due to reduced complications of kidney disease or kidney failure.
  2. Reduced signs and symptoms of kidney failure like uremia, swelling, nausea, vomiting, or fatigue.

  3. The doctor may suggest the patient with a few lab tests.
  4. Health condition of the patient may be evaluated before undergoing this procedure.
  5. The access will help in removing a small amount of blood from the circulation safely and send it back to test how hemodialysis might work.

How Dialysis is done?

  2. The individual will be started with hemodialysis, Once this incision is healed.

  4. It is a painless procedure and the doctor may recommend the person to sit back and relax or take a nap during the hemodialysis process.


Method-2: Peritoneal Dialysis

Peritoneal Dialysis is done by the following steps:

  1. A catheter will be placed 10 to 14 days prior to the procedure. This catheter will help to filter your blood through a membrane in your abdomen called peritoneum.
  2. The dialysate fluid is added through the catheter into your abdomen and the catheter is closed with the help of a cap and left for 4 to 6 six hours in your body. This period is called dwell time. You can participate in your everyday activities during the dwell time.
  3. During this period, the dialysate will absorb waste products and excess fluid from the body. Then the fluid is drained into an empty bag and the bag is discarded. 
  4. Fresh dialysate is added into the abdominal cavity through the catheter and the procedure is repeated. This process is called an exchange.
