In brief: PD

As far as i know there is only one type of peritoneal dialysis.
However it is personalized for each patient. There are several different catheters that can be used and the fluid used in the dialysis can be different based on a patient's membrane transport type and residual renal function.

In brief: See below

The process is the same, but it is done manually called capd, continous ambulatory pd, and by a cycler a machine [which connects to the tube and automatically fills in the fluid] at night called ccpd, continous cycler pd.
