Drawing of three steps in peritoneal dialysis exchange, labeled. Title: Drawing of three steps in peritoneal dialysis exchange, labeled
Alternate text: Drawing of three steps in peritoneal dialysis exchange, labeled.
Caption: The first step of an exchange is to drain the used dialysis solution from the peritoneal cavity into the drain bag. Near the end of the drain, you may feel a mild "tugging" sensation that tells you most of the fluid is gone. After the used solution is removed from your abdomen, you will close or clamp the transfer set and let some of the fresh solution flow directly into the drain bag. This flushing step removes air from the tubes.
