ISN-ISPD Webinar: Urgent-start Peritoneal Dialysis


ISN-ISPD Webinar: Urgent-Start Peritoneal Dialysis

Between 30 and 80% of patients start dialysis as an emergency, most often with a temporary haemodialysis catheter. This results in excess cost and morbidity along with the inability of patients to access the dialysis modality of their choice. Urgent-start peritoneal dialysis has been shown to be safe and effective. This webinar will assess the evidence in favour of this approach, access options and treatment prescriptions.  

Learning Objectives:

  1. Options for urgent-start dialysis 
  2. Peritoneal access for urgent-start patients
  3. Prescribing dialysis in urgent-start patients
