    I have several different sources. One mentions peritoneal dialysis and renal dialysis, whereas the others mention peritoneal dialysis and haemodialysis. The descriptions of renal and haemodialysis are slightly different which is why I'm confused.

    Haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis are both types of renal dialysis.
