Dialysis is a treatment that removes waste and fluids from the body when your kidneys no longer work well enough to keep the body healthy. Today, there are a range of dialysis treatment options available, including multiple treatment choices that allow you to conduct your dialysis at home. If you're a patient interested in home dialysis, these options allow you, your doctor, and your dialysis partner to choose the treatment that best suits your clinical needs and lifestyle choices.
During hemodialysis, blood is sent from the body to an outside machine (dialyzer) that filters out the waste and extra fluids and then returns blood to the body. Hemodialysis is typically conducted in a dedicated facility, either a special room in a hospital or a clinic (with specialized nurses and technicians) that specializes in hemodialysis.
Peritoneal dialysis is performed by running dialysate through a catheter into the peritoneum (a protective membrane that lines the abdominal cavity). This allows blood to be filtered inside the body. Many patients perform peritoneal dialysis at home or at work without assistance.
