T he adequacy of peritoneal dialysis in terms of urea and creatinine kinetics is becoming better established (1 ,2). Weekly creatinine clearance of more than 50 L normalized to body surface area are currently recommended for minimally adequate dialysis. The delivery of an adequate peritoneal dialysis prescription is dependent on the compliance of the patient with that prescription. Keen et at. (3) have found overall compliance with prescribed exchanges in continuous ambulatory peritoneal… CONTINUE READING
