The timing circuit also helps to monitor the diffusion rate. As already said, diffusion process happens for 30 minutes. If the timing of diffusion increases, the timing circuit gives an indication to stop the process. A suction pump is used to remove the dialysate solution from the abdomen cavity. After this process, fresh and new dialysate solution passes to the abdomen cavity. Quantity of 2 litre of dialysate is removed from the patient body. If suppose the quantity is less, alarm of the timing circuit is activated. This helps doctors to monitor the patient at a regular basis.
Difference Between Haemodialysis and Peritoneal Dialysis
|1||In this method, blood is purified using hemodialyser, which acts as artificial kidney. Blood is removed from the body. Waste products diffuse through the semi - permeable membrane. They are continuously rinsed with dialysate solution.||In this method, the abdomen of the patient acts as semi permeable membrane. The dialysate solution passes through it to remove the waste from the blood.|
|2||It is more efficiently used for waste removal.||It is comparatively less efficiently used.|
|3||Since blood is taken out from the body, the process is little complex and risk.||It does not involve removal of blood, so simple and risk free.|
|4||The time taken for dialysis is 3 to 6 hours.||The time taken for dialysis is 9 to 12 hours.|
