Home Peritoneal Dialysis Unit - Alberta Kidney Care - North
Provides peritoneal dialysis (HPD) that can be done by clients in their home; provides training, support, and multidisciplinary follow up clinical care.
Dialysis fluid is infused through a tube into the client’s belly. The peritoneal membrane (lining of the belly) acts as a filter to take away toxins and extra fluid from the body. Clients usually do 4 treatments per day, with each treatment lasting about 30 minutes.
Nurses teach clients and family members about peritoneal dialysis and how to do it at home. Follow-up is done by phone and in routine clinic visits.
Service is offered to clients in central and northern Alberta, neighbouring provinces, and the Northwest Territories.
