Peritoneal Dialysis

PD Therapy

Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is a therapy that typically is managed by patients at home. The therapy works by cleaning the blood of toxins and removing extra fluids through one of the body’s own membranes, the peritoneal membrane.

There are two methods to infuse and drain (exchange) PD solutions: Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), in which patients manually exchange PD fluids using a solution bag and tubing connected to the catheter several times a day; and automated peritoneal dialysis (APD), in which solution is infused and drained automatically by a cycler machine, typically while the patient sleeps.

Our portfolio of innovative PD cyclers, solutions and services are designed to provide healthcare providers and patients a range of treatment options across CAPD and APD.

Hemodialysis patient

HD Therapy

Hemodialysis (HD) therapy is used to treat an estimated 2 million end-stage renal disease patients worldwide, and is most often performed in a clinic typically three times a week, for three to five hours per session. The therapy works by cleaning the blood of toxins and removing extra fluids when it is pumped through an external filter, or dialyzer.

We offer a vast portfolio of innovative HD dialysis systems, dialyzers, solutions and services that provide a range of treatment options for healthcare providers around the world.

The SHARESOURCE system also provides a patient’s healthcare team better visibility to their missed treatments.

SHARESOURCE remote patient management platform has helped healthcare providers manage more than 1 million and counting peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatments in patients’ homes, globally.
