Anjali Bhatt Saxena

Dr. Anjali Bhatt Saxena will be presenting Managing PD Catheter Dysfunction during COVID-19 on Thursday, September 17, 2020

Catheter dysfunction is a frequent cause of technique failure and a common reason for transfer from PD to HD. Catheter dysfunction occurs when there is not the proper dialysate flow needed for dialysis. This presentation addresses the causes and treatment approaches to catheter dysfunction.

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

  • Describe how to assess, manage and prevent the following types of PD catheter dysfunction:
    • Flow disturbances
    • Inflow/outflow pain
    • Catheter migration and occlusion

Dr. John H. Crabtree will be presenting Peritoneal Dialysis Access: Catheters Placement on Thursday, September 24, 2020

Peritoneal access is a key aspect in technique survival and successful PD therapy. The history of peritoneal access outcomes, peritoneal catheter morphology and proper implantation techniques are discussed in this presentation.This presentation discusses the reasons why patient retention on PD is important and will review some important concepts that may help patients stay on therapy.

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

  • Differentiate between the various catheter types
  • Make informed decisions regarding catheter selection
  • Identify best demonstrated practices in catheter implantation techniques
  • Recognize unique situations that warrant a customized access for specific needs of the patient and/or program

Dr. Marcos Rothstein will be presenting PD Clinical Q&A Featuring Peritoneal Membrane Physiology and Prescription Management Patient on Wednesday, October 7, 2020

This is a chance for you to bring all of your clinical questions to the table and have a 1:1 conversation with Dr. Rothstein, one of the PD industry’s leading key opinion leaders. We noticed that our national webinar’s audience had more questions than our Q&A session allowed time for, so this is a brand new offering allowing us to focus more time on directly addressing your clinical needs. In addition, Dr. Rothstein will present key concepts from our Peritoneal Membrane Physiology and Prescription Management presentation.

During this time, you will have the opportunity to ask specific questions, hear case studies as well as learn key concepts on the following:

  • 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
