Uremia is a common disease in life, has brought serious harm to the patient's life, timely treatment of uremic patients is everyone’s heart, but we do not know what is the difference between hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.
Peritoneal dialysis mainly uses the peritoneum of the patient as a means of clearing toxins and water. The doctor surgery to a 30 cm catheter inserted into the patient's abdominal cavity, the incision was sutured to dialysis. Pour 1.5 to 2 liters of dialysate slowly into the abdominal cavity every day, and let it stay in the abdominal cavity for 4 hours, so as to metabolize as much waste and water as possible into the dialysate, and then draw it out through the same tube. The process takes place 4 times a day. The hemodialysis is piped to a patient's blood through that artificial kidney dialyzer cleaning, remove blood of toxins and excess water, then put the blood transfusion to the patient, to remove the body part of the toxin cycle to. The process takes 4~5 hours each time and requires dialysis 2~3 times a week.
Peritoneal dialysis better than hemodialysis is that the patients themselves or their families after training to operate at home, many patients can carry out household, short trips, and even participate in the work.
In end-stage, when renal appear uremia clinical manifestations, the preferred treatment is peritoneal dialysis,if peritoneal dialysis can not continue consider hemodialysis, if first do hemodialysis, after feeling unwell, want to do peritoneal dialysis, the condition is not allowed. Therefore, patients still have to choose dialysis methods according to their own conditions, prevention of uremia can reduce the pain of patients.
