Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD):the patient is able to perform his or her own dialysis throughout the day, because very little special equipment is required. The CAPD patient completes an exchange of fluid three or four times a day, at home or at work.
Continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis (CCPD): uses a machine to perform peritoneal dialysis once each day while the patient sleeps rather than three or four times throughout the day as in CAPD. Like the CAPD patients, CCPD patients generally come to the ESRD facility only for training and for monthly evaluations or when a complication arises.
