Why would a patient want to do Peritoneal Dialysis?
- PD is generally provided in the patient’s home, precluding the need to commute to and from dialysis on a fixed schedule.
- • PD provides patients an active role in their own care
- • Greater independence
- • More flexibility in dialysis prescription to accommodate school, work, travel, and recreation
- • Unlike conventional HD, PD is a needleless form of RRT.
