Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) is a type of dialysis that uses the patient's own peritoneal membrane as a natural filter to remove waste and excess fluid from the body. It is a form of home dialysis, meaning that the patient can perform the procedure in the comfort of their own home. PD involves the insertion of a catheter into the patient's abdomen, through which a dialysis solution is infused and drained. This solution absorbs waste and excess fluid from the body, which is then removed from the body when the solution is drained. PD is a less invasive form of dialysis than hemodialysis, and is often preferred by patients due to its convenience and flexibility.
Some companies in the Peritoneal Dialysis market include Baxter International, Fresenius Medical Care, Nipro Medical Corporation, B. Braun Melsungen AG, and DaVita Inc. Show Less Read more
