How Does Continuous Cycling Peritoneal Dialysis (CCPD) work?

CCPD is convenient but the cycler machine is expensive.

Continuous Cycling Peritoneal Dialysis is done at night, while you sleep. The process takes 8-10 hours. Here, you would need to connect the catheter to a machine called the 'CYCLER'. The CYCLER throughout the night does the bag exchanges automatically.

This is useful and a convenient form of dialysis especially for patients who are working. It also means that it is not necessary to do 3 to 4 exchanges in the daytime hence the chances of infections are less.

The cycler can cost about Rs. 1.25 lakhs, however the company could sometimes arrange a cheaper second hand machine.
