Peritoneal dialysis is a form of treatment for patients suffering from severe chronic kidney disease. It uses the individual¬ís peritoneum in abdomen as a membrane. Across which fluids and dissolved substances can be exchanged from the blood. A permanent tube is used to introduce fluid in the abdomen. It is then flushed out either every night while the patient sleeps or via regular exchanges throughout the day. Peritoneal dialysis is used as an alternative to hemodialysis. It is significantly less costly in most parts of the world, with the advantage of self-administering.
Scientific journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting novel research. There are thousands of scientific journals in publication, and many more have been published at various points in the past. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Scientific journals contain articles that are peer reviewed, to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. The publication of the results of research is an essential part of the scientific method. If they are describing experiments or calculations, they must supply enough details that an independent researcher could repeat the experiment or calculation to verify the results. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
