Dependable Peritoneal Catheter Placement from Wayne Health Vascular & Vein Center
Are you in need of regular dialysis treatments, but do not want to have to travel to a dialysis center? If so, you may want to ask your kidney doctor if you are an ideal candidate for peritoneal dialysis. Peritoneal dialysis is a dialysis treatment that can be performed right at your home, thanks in part to the peritoneal catheter services from Wayne Health Vascular & Vein Center in Goldsboro, NC.
Peritoneal dialysis works by using a membrane within your body to act as a filter for excess fluids and toxins that your kidneys cannot filter, particularly in the instance of kidney failure. Wayne Vascular & Vein can help you get started on peritoneal dialysis with a peritoneal catheter. The catheter will be placed by Dr. Albrecht and will act as a route for dialysis access. It is typically placed one and a half to two weeks ahead of the beginning of your treatments.
How Goldsboro, NC Peritoneal Catheters Work
Peritoneal dialysis can be completed while you are at home, and even while you are asleep once you are comfortable with the process. During peritoneal dialysis, you will use the peritoneal catheter from Wayne Vascular & Vein to take in dialysate (a dialysis fluid).
This will provide a space for the extra toxins and fluids within your body to travel to. It should be drained after a few hours and replaced with another batch of dialysate. Depending on the type of peritoneal dialysis your doctor recommends, this could be every six hours or every 12.
Complete your dialysis treatments in Goldsboro from the comfort of your own home by trusting Wayne Vascular & Vein with your peritoneal catheter placement.
