  • fluid
  • This is because some protein is lost into the peritoneal fluid. (empowher.com)
  • Another way to increase the amount of fluid and waste drawn into the peritoneal cavity is to use dialysis solution with a higher concentration of dextrose. (nih.gov)
  • As the concentration of dextrose in the body comes closer to that in the solution, dialysis becomes less effective, and fluid is slowly absorbed from the abdominal cavity. (nih.gov)
  • The dialysis solution used for the overnight dwell time may have a higher concentration of dextrose so that it removes wastes and fluid for a longer time. (nih.gov)
  • However, there is slow but continuous absorption of fluid via the peritoneal lymphatics, potentially leading to poor net ultrafiltration, low drain volume, and potential systemic volume expansion. (uptodate.com)
  • By using a disposable cassette ( 8 ) integrally formed with a diaphragm, heating portion, and flow path switching portion, a predetermined amount of dialysis fluid is heated to a predetermined temperature with the heating portion. (google.co.uk)

(google.co.uk)
  • Once the dialysis is started, a nurse can watch the patient and keep track of the volumetric balance between the fluid put into the patient and the iiuid taken out. (google.com)
  • In this method, the exchange of dialysis fluid can be done through a synthetic tube which is placed in the abdominal cavity. (mynewsdesk.com)

  • Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is a treatment option for many people, and it allows patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) to lead active, productive lives without the need to spend hours each week in a dialysis clinic. (davita.com)
  • Patients whose dialysis is impacted by Hurricane Harvey or Hurricane Irma should call 1-800-400-8331 . (davita.com)
  • Factors such as the rising number of ESRD patients across the globe, increasing prevalence of diabetes and hypertension, growth in aging population, low patient preference towards kidney transplantation, and technological advancements are propelling the growth of the dialysis market. (prnewswire.com)
  • Designed for home use, the device was made for ease of use and it works with Baxter's SHARESOURCE online platform that allows clinicians to review patients' dialysis sessions. (medgadget.com)
  • Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is a well-established technique of renal replacement therapy in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). (hindawi.com)
  • cycler
  • To remove even more wastes, a mini-cycler machine can be used to exchange the dialysis solution once or several times overnight as the patient sleeps. (nih.gov)
  • dialysate
  • The rate of diffusion of any solute or the dialysate-to-plasma ratio of that solute after a timed dwell is related to the perfusion of existing capillaries and the vascularity of (capillary density) a specified peritoneal surface area. (uptodate.com)
  • In some dialysis machines, the urea clearance during dialysis is estimated by testing the ability of the dialyzer to remove a small salt load that is added to the dialysate during dialysis. (wikipedia.org)

  • The dialysis solution used for the long daytime dwell may have a higher concentration of dextrose. (nih.gov)
  • After the solution is left in the peritoneal cavity from 30 to 120 minutes it is drained out and additional solution is introduced into the cavity. (google.com)
