How many ml of fluid do you usually get rid of when you drain manually? I have been using Extraneal with 2500ml with usually getting rid of 700ml of fluid.
Hello, this is really going to depend on the individual, how much fluid there is to give up, how well the membrane functions, how much inflammation there is in the body/peritoneum, nutritional status, etc. An Extraneal drain should result in more fluid removal than a 4.25% strength dwell. I’m a nurse not a patient, but my dad was on PD and Extraneal. Every time he got a 1000 mL net UF, he’d take a picture and text it to me with pride. He did also a few times dehydrate himself using Extraneal and noticed lower UF and BPs.
