Anyone have any thoughts on the pros and cons of CCPD vs. CAPD, or continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis (CCPD)continuous ambulatory vs. peritoneal dialysis.

More detailed:
continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD)
The procedure include: patient does not attached to a machine and exchange happens manually with gravity the dialysis; happens continuously: 24 hours a day and 7 days a week with dwell time lasts 3 to 5 hours; there are about 4 exchanges every day, while each exchange takes about 30 mins. [6]

VS.

continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis (CCPD)
The procedure includes: patients attached to a machine, the “cycler”; the machine accomplishes the exchanges automatically based on pre-programmed settings; patients are attached to the machine during the night when sleeping; automatic exchanges occur over 8 to 10 hours. [7]

This really should be determined by the type of membrane properties (high transporter, low transporter) due to dwell times. A "high" transporter will do better than a "low" transporter with the shorter cycles of CCPD. Also should take into consideration the patients lifestyle.
