Peritoneal Dialysis (Pd) The term 'Peritoneal Dialysis (Pd) ' as it applies to the area of Medicare in the United States can be defined as ' PD uses a cleaning solution, called dialysate, that flows through a special tube into your abdomen. After a few hours, the dialysate gets drained from your abdomen, taking the wastes from your blood with it. Then you fill your abdomen with fresh dialysate and the cleaning process begins again. This treatment can be done at home, at your workplace, or at another convenient location (See dialysis and hemodialysis.)'.
