Regarding CAPD Liquid Disposal?
Good night Can we make CAPD liquid in the yard near the house? Or is it better to throw it into the toilet.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Kidney is one of the most important organs for the body. The kidneys filter blood to get rid of the remnants of processed bodies that can be hazardous when stored, and then discharged through urine. In addition, the role of the kidneys is also to regulate blood pressure. So that if a kidney is damaged, it must be replaced using a new kidney (kidney transplant) or with the help of a tool. CAPD or continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis is one method of kidney replacement therapy, apart from dialysis (hemodialysis) and kidney transplantation.
This method is done by inserting a plastic tube into the body or precisely in the abdominal cavity by means of anesthesia. Furthermore, the advantage of this method compared to dialysis done in hospitals is that it works continuously and can be taken anywhere. Of course, because this tool is a filter device, there are residual filters that should be discarded.
Regarding your question, actually there is no absolute prohibition to dispose of the remaining liquid anywhere. But our advice, because it is waste, you should dispose of the appropriate place such as a toilet. By throwing it into the yard or a place that is not appropriate, it could be that there will be an unpleasant odor or even disease transmission. So, hopefully answering your question.
