Atrodo, kad tai yra daktarų žargonas. Mano supratimu, paprastai, "the dwell"yra laikas, kurį pacientas praleidžia gaunant infuziją. But atrodo, kad dar ir vadina pačią infuziją "the dwell".

Example sentence(s):
  • CAPD is usually performed four times a day, and the drain and fill steps of each exchange require around 20-30 minutes. The dwell time is generally 3-4 hours, depending on individual needs.
