Baxter offers a variety of products across modalities for patients with kidney disease as their clinical and lifestyle needs evolve.

Peritoneal Dialysis 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.

Baxter’s 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.
