it's a blind technique

to those who has a family member with chronic kidney problem - u should have heard about this procedure called the peritoneal dialysis.
the aim , or purpose for this procedure is the same as the hemodialysis, which to reduce urea in ur blood.


so, the fun part about this procedure , it is a blind technique. So, u need to be experience and smart to do this procedure successfully.
the complication of this procedure is - the most dangerous one is the perforation of the bowel. when we poke the catheter inside the peritoneal cavity,
there is a good chance we could injury the intestine as well.
which, happened quite a lot...


but then, as i told u before, considering this is a blind technique , shit could happen to any doctor who- did the PD and perforated the bowel ...
which is very very unfortunate - to the patient.. and the doctor as well...
