Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis – Kidney Research UK

This is a factsheet, aimed at patients, which explains the basics behind Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD). There are also links to Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (APD), haemodialysis and transplant.

The layout is easy to follow, and obviously the patient’s perspective is paramount. It highlights the pros and cons of each mode of PD, and discusses lifestyle. A good overview but lacking in detail. An ideal introduction for students.
