AIM Traditional apprenticeship model (AM) of teaching in invasive procedures such as temporary haemodialysis catheter (THDC) insertion can result in propagation of errors and complications. Simulation-based learning (SBL) offers standardization of skills and allows trainees to repeatedly practice invasive procedures prior to performing them on actual(More)
♦ OBJECTIVE: Prevention of exit-site infection (ESI) is of paramount importance to peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of chlorhexidine in the prevention of ESI in incident PD patients compared with mupirocin. ♦ METHODS: This retrospective, pre-test/post-test observational study included all incident PD(More)
Peritonitis is a major cause of morbidity, mortality and excess health care costs in peritoneal dialysis (PD) [1–4] and is the predominant factor limiting the uptake and retention of patients on PD [1, 5]. Following a single episode of peritonitis, the risks of further peritonitis episodes, haemodialysis transfer and death (due to infection, cardiovascular(More)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Technique failure is a major limitation of peritoneal dialysis. Our study aimed to identify center- and patient-level predictors of peritoneal dialysis technique failure. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS All patients on incident peritoneal dialysis in Australia from 2004 to 2014 were included in the study using data(More)
The objectives of this study are to extract the antimicrobial agent from Aloe Vera gel with methanol and to investigate the effect of antimicrobial activity of Aloe Vera gel extract on bleached cotton fabric. It is also intended to produce Eco-friendly antimicrobial cotton fabric from Aloe Vera gel extract and to protect the consumer from microorganisms(More)
BACKGROUND Corynebacterium is a rare cause of peritonitis that is increasingly being recognized in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. The aims of this study were to compare Corynebacterium peritonitis outcomes with those of peritonitis caused by other organisms and to examine the effects of type and duration of antibiotic therapy on outcomes of(More)
♦ OBJECTIVE: Preservation of residual renal function (RRF) is associated with improved survival. The aim of the present study was to identify independent predictors of RRF and urine volume (UV) in incident peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. ♦ METHODS: The study included incident PD patients who were balANZ trial participants. The primary and secondary(More)
BACKGROUND Peritonitis is a common cause of technique failure in peritoneal dialysis (PD). Dialysis center-level characteristics may influence PD peritonitis outcomes independent of patient-level characteristics. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS Using Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry (ANZDATA)(More)
A comparative study of the physical performance capacity of 32 Burmese women aged 19-24 years of the rural and urban area was conducted. Difference in physique was found between the two groups. Maximal oxygen uptake of the rural group was 39.21 ml/kg/min and that of the urban group was 32.32 ml/kg/min, the difference being significant at 0.1% level. Maximal(More)
