Peritoneal Dialysis: A Bath for my Belly



Peritoneal Dialysis: A Bath for my Belly explains the purpose and experience of treatment called peritoneal dialysis, answering questions including: What is it? Why do you need it? How does it feel? Written in easy to understand language with fun color illustrations, this book introduces you to Tiana who describes their experience, in order to reassure readers and help them understand this treatment for kids who have kidneys that don’t work so well.

The story uses an analogy that compares peritoneal dialysis to a bath, to explain that the treatment cleans our blood with a special cleaning liquid, just like a bath cleans our body with soapy water.

Important information is included in a ‘Facts’ section, covering information about kidneys, different types of dialysis, what the treatment entails, how to prepare for it, and catheter surgery and home care. You will also find a convenient glossary of ‘Doctor Words’ with relevant medical terms explained in plain language. This is an informative and enjoyable book that aims to provide comfort, hope, and key information to children and their families.
