Another newbie to PD
CAPD is a type of dialysis that can be done at home, or even at work. In this forum, Michelle Cassin, RN and Senior Clinical Director of DaVita Home Dialysis will respond to your questions. Please note: for time sensitive issues, always contact your care team or on-call nurse directly for the fastest response.
