Hi all, I am on APD ( with a Baxter machine) and travel is fine provided you give Baxter enough notice via your NHS PD unit (in UK) . You have to take the machine in its travel case so you may need a helper as it is heavy.

I'm not sure if it is the same situation with PD as with hemo in the USA as there is no reciprocal agreement between the UK & USA to cover costs of dialysis for Hemo. I think I have heard of people doing PD there though with no probs. I'm sure someone else will be able to help you more than I can.

st places, espeically in the US/Canada will have had some understanding of providing food for dialysis patients, so I shouldnt stress excessively over that side of things. Going on vacation with either PD or heamo requires tree a long time in early notification... most inns will get PD suff and it IS a smart thought to get a couple of more conveyed on the off chance that you get postponed.
