Several different techniques are available for performing peritoneal dialysis (PD). The rates of peritoneal blood flow and dialysate flow with PD are well below those achieved with hemodialysis (where both are often above 400 mL/min). Thus, the clearance of urea and other small solutes per unit time is much less with PD than with hemodialysis. However, PD is often performed in a continuous fashion so that the weekly solute clearances approach those with hemodialysis.
