Step Into Home: Incremental Dialysis

Incremental PD involves the gradual introduction of renal replacement therapy for ESRD patients with substantial residual kidney function. This presentation covers an overview of the incremental PD approach, survival trends, review of the literature, discussion of lifestyle implications and choosing appropriate patients.

Upon completion of this session, you will be able to:

  • Differentiate between this type of therapy and traditional full-dose regimens
  • Identify the role of residual kidney function in Incremental PD
  • Discuss how to utilize Incremental PD as a progressive dialysis regimen based on individual patient condition and need

PD Prescription Management

Prescribing chronic PD therapy is part science and part art. The science of the prescription is in the understanding of the patient’s membrane transport status, ultrafiltration and adequacy requirements, and residual kidney function. The art of a PD prescription is in designing a regimen that supports long-term therapy maintenance. This presentation will review salient concepts to achieving an appropriate prescription and ensure long-term success on PD. Additionally, several case studies will be reviewed to facilitate discussion and understanding of the concepts presented in the deck.

Upon completion of this session, you will be able to:

  • Describe the PET and ultrafiltration profiles
  • Identify PD prescription goals
  • Discuss the relationship between aquaporins and sodium sieving to a PD prescription
  • Tailor a PD prescription to an individual patient’s peritoneal vascularity
  • Formulate prescription strategies to membrane preservation and long-term therapy maintenance
