Flashcard 4 - Physiological Adaptation Flashcard Set for the NCLEX-RN Exam


The correct answer is:

peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis


Both types of dialysis can be done in an outpatient dialysis center, some acute care facilities, and in the patient’s home, if appropriate. Unlike hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis can be done daily and may also be done during the night while the patient is sleeping. Continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) may also be considered a type of dialysis, though this type can only be done in an acute care facility, as the machine requires patients to be connected to it 24 hours a day throughout the duration of therapy.
