Webinar: Peritoneal Dialysis for Acute Kidney Injury

This webinar will cover the recently published ISPD guidelines on PD for AKI and practical aspects of acute PD including access and prescription.  

Description of the Webinar

Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) is associated with high morbidity and mortality. In most cases a short period of dialysis will allow many patients full recovery of function and return to a good quality of life. In many countries haemodialysis and haemofiltration are inaccessible due to cost and lack of infrastructure. Peritoneal dialysis (PD)  on the other hand is cost effective, and affordable for most developing countries. The ISN 0 X 25 initiative will rely heavily on the provision of acute PD for those patients who develop AKI. This webinar will briefly cover the recently published ISPD guidelines on PD for AKI and then deal with the practical aspects of acute PD including access and prescription.
