CH 5: Peritoneal Dialysis

YouTube Video

In PD or peritoneal dialysis a soft catheter is placed in the abdomen. The abdominal lining, otherwise known as the peritoneum, is used as a natural filter to get rid of wastes, toxins, and extra fluid.
Dialysis solution is placed in the abdomen and helps absorb wastes, which then get eliminated from the body when the fluid is drained out, much like urine.
