how to travel on a domestic flight if you do peritoneal dialysis

1. Drain out the dextrose solution from your body the night before your flight.
2. Take the earliest morning flight to your destination.
3. Arrive, begin a 24 hour countdown and get aclimatized 

4. Set up an appointment with a hospital for a session of heamodialysis - this appointment should begin approximately at the time your 24 hour countdown ends. 
5. Go for heamodialysis
6. Do what you need to do for the next 2 days
7. Go for heamodialysis again on the 3rd day

8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 for the entire duration of your stay
9. Fly back
10. Resume peritoneal dialysis when you are back at home
