Automated Peritoneal Dialysis: A Cost Effective Solution

Akanksha Fadnavis | Prof. Mrs. S. P. Tondare

Abstract: Cost is an influential constraint when treatment of kidney disease is considered. Automated Peritoneal dialysis (APD) is a very flexible and healthy method to perform dialysis as compared to other traditional methods like Hemodialysis. Even though, the APD is broadly being used by the end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients to enhance their lifestyle, the cost factor remains as a major disadvantage. To overcome this drawback, a cost effective system is designed for automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) for artificial filtration function of the kidney. Thus the paper is aimed to introduce an APD system which is cost effective and includes all the advantages of the existing systems which can be opted by a larger society to enhance their lifestyle for better living.
