Paediatric nursing. Paediatric nurse and mother in a hospital ward caring for a 5-month-old baby girl who has just undergone dialysis. This is where waste products (such as urea) are removed from the baby's blood by a machine because her kidneys are unable to carry out this function for her. The technique used here was peritoneal dialysis, where the filter used is the patient's own peritoneum (abdominal lining).
