Managing PD Catheter Complications 2-Part Series - Part 1: Mechanical Complications of Peritoneal Dialysis

The success of a peritoneal dialysis program depends upon patients maintaining a functional PD access. Mechanical complications are some of the most common reasons for technique failure and patient transfer to hemodialysis. Familiarity with the causes for mechanical complications and proper corrective interventions can help maintain technique survival with PD. This presentation is the first in a 2-part series on Managing PD Catheter Complications. The presentation includes an interactive digital algorithm for clinical decision-making with respect to mechanical complications, videos and case study reviews

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

  • List the causes for lower than expected dialysate drain volumes
  • Systematically assess catheter flow dysfunction to determine most likely cause
  • Describe diagnostic tools and interventions used to identify and treat catheter flow dysfunction
  • Discuss the evaluation and management of peritoneal boundary defects including pericatheter leaks, hernias and pleuroperitoneal fistulae with hydrothorax
  • Detail the management of damage to the external catheter tubing

Managing PD Catheter Complications 2-Part Series - Part 2: Exit-site/Tunnel Infections, Relapsing Peritonitis and Acute Abdominal Emergencies

Infectious complications are the most common cause of catheter loss resulting in the patient transferring to hemodialysis. This second part of the series on Managing PD Catheter Complications focuses on exit-site/tunnel infections, relapsing peritonitis and acute abdominal emergencies. The presentation includes an interactive digital algorithm, surgical management/treatment options and case study reviews to enhance learning and retention of material.

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

  • Evaluate the catheter exit-site/subcutaneous tunnel and diagnose infection
  • Discuss surgical management and treatment options for exit-site and tunnel infections
  • Detail the indications for simultaneous catheter replacement for relapsing peritonitis
  • Recognize acute abdominal emergences that may be initially mistaken for dialysis-related peritonitis

PD Clinical Q&A with Dr. Marcos Rothstein featuring key concepts on Peritoneal Membrane Physiology and PD Prescription Management

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’ll have the opportunity to ask specific questions, hear case studies as well as learn key concepts on the following:

  • The PET and ultrafiltration profiles
  • Identifying 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

Peritoneal Membrane Physiology and 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.

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
