In the 1960s, peritoneal dialysis for the treatment of uremia was performed intermittently. Patients would come in to receive treatment for 10 to 24 hours or more at a time, two to four times weekly. It was soon recognized that intermittent peritoneal dialysis did not provide adequate control of uremia and this approach was abandoned in favor of thrice-weekly hemodialysis. This changed in 1975 with the successful treatment of one patient with peritoneal dialysis performed continuously, rather than intermittently, while living at home, rather than in a healthcare setting.
