This is a loaded question - very hard to answer as not knowing if the patient a hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis or has some kidney function or no kidney function. So, I found a link that may be of interest that you could find out any information you need to know.

I found a link for you that may be of interest:

One way in which dialysis fluid is different to blood plasma?

The dialysis fluid is different to plasmas in that it does not have the uric acid and urea in it.. besides that- it has no excess salts either.


Why does the fluid in a dialysis machine have the same concentration of glucose as the blood?

Because if the dialysis fluid didn't contain glucose, the glucose in the blood will be transferred across the concentration gradient to the fluid and this will cause hypoglycemia which is dangerous.


How much fluid in a renal diet?

In general most dialysis patients are limited to about one and one-half quarts of fluid per day. However, the individual recommended fluid intake for all dialysis and renal patients varies greatly and depends on many factors related to the individual patient. For example, the patient's current kidney function, the patient's individual ability to urinate, his or her diet, and the type of dialysis treatment the patient receives, if any, all play a role in the determining the recommended amount. The consequences of too much fluid intake can be severe, potentially causing an increase in blood pressure and subsequent issues with the heart. If you have any questions about your individual recommendations, please consult with your nephrologist and dietician. There are a few things to be aware of when regulating fluids. The total fluid amount includes not only beverages, but also liquid in foods as well. Soups, excessively juicy fruits (like oranges and watermelon), and frozen treats which turn to liquid at room temperature, all count toward the total daily fluid intake. Avoiding highly salted foods can be beneficial since they tend to make you more thirsty and also cause the retention of fluids in the body.

Dialysis how many types of dialysis?

There are two methods of dialysis in use: hemodialysis (blood dialysis) and peritoneal dialysis (dialysis in the abdominal cavity). In hemodialysis, the dialysis membrane is made up of cellophane or other synthetic material that assists in the removal of impurities from the blood by their passage through these semipermeable membranes in a fluid bath. In peritoneal dialysis, the surface area of the peritoneum acts as the membrane. Dialysis fluid is introduced into the peritoneal cavity and then periodically removed along with the waste products. This procedure may be done at intervals throughout the day or during the night.

What is peritoneal dialysis in the treatment of kidney diseases?

Peritoneal dialysis in the treatment of kidney disease is the infusion of the abdomen with a special fluid. After some time the fluid is removed and refreshed by a fresh fluid. Thus the body can get rid of waste products.

How does drinking more water usually help decrease fluid retention or edema when a patient has no fluid restrictions?

Many patients who have edema -- fluid retention -- often reduce their water and fluid intake. But this can compound the problem with edema. Fluid intake increases blood volume and stimulates the kidneys to remove fluid wastes. At the cellular level in tissues, increased fluid volume promotes better circulation, which prompts the cells to increase how they move wastes into the bloodstream for transport to the kidneys for processing.However, each patient must discuss this with their doctor. Some patients do have fluid restrictions depending on that patient's medical conditions. But generally speaking, most people can handle normal fluid intake when they have edema and often see better kidney function and less edema.


How peritoneal dialysis is formed?

peritoneal dialysis work on the same principle except abdomen has a peritoneal cavity, lined by a thin epithelium called as peritoneum. peritoneal cavity is filled with dialysis fluid that enters the body through a catheter. excess water and waste pass through the peritoneum into the dialysis fluid. this process is repeated several times in a day.


What are two types of dialysis?

Hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Hemodialysis is done by drawing blood to a dialysis machine, then returning the blood to the body. Peritoneal dialysis is don by administering a solution into the peritoneal cavity through a catheter, waiting, then draining the fluid later on.
