The longest safe period between dialysis is five days. This long gap should only be taken after medical consultation, with care and not often. From the above it is obvious that life on dialysis restricts the freedom of the patient. The restriction applies equally to haemodialysis or IPD (page 99), but to a lesser extent to a patient receiving CAPD (page 88) or CCPD (page 105). If a potential dialysis patient has plans for a holiday abroad it should be taken before dialysis treatment begins, if his condition permits.
