Peritoneal Dialysis Therapy Prescription Adequacy Predicted with Standard and Fast PET

San Diego—The fast peritoneal equilibration test (PET) is used to determine peritoneal membrane transport status. However, there are few data quantifying the accuracy of using PET to predict parameters of peritoneal dialysis therapy. Researchers recently conducted a study designed to examine the ability of a new version of PD Adequest, a computer software program, to (1) compare mass transfer-area coefficients ... Read More »
