A simple and fast method to estimate peritoneal membrane transport characteristics using dialysate sodium concentration.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The peritoneal equilibration test (PET) is widely used to classify a patient's peritoneal transport characteristics. However, PET is laborious and the prediction of fluid removal based on PET is generally poor. It is believed that osmosis by glucose occurs partially through transcellular water channels, resulting in sieving of sodium and decrease… (More)
