What are Survival Rates for Dialysis Patients?

What are Survival Rates for Dialysis Patients? | Peritoneal dialysis | Scoop.it

In general, survival rates for dialysis patients are poor. Based on the United States Renal Data System (USRDS) report, the adjusted survival rate for hemodialysis (HD) patients is 57% at 3 years after onset of ESRD as compared to 68% for peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. The 5-year survival for HD and PD patients is 42% and 52%, respectively. With deceased donor kidney transplantation, 3-year survival improves to 85%. For comparison, the general population survival rate (matched for age and sex) is 92-94%. 5-year survival for long-term dialysis patients has been shown to be either longer or shorter than cancer patients, depending on the type of malignancy.

When should One need to start Dialysis after diagnosis?

When should One need to start Dialysis after diagnosis? | Peritoneal dialysis | Scoop.it

Human kidneys are two bean-shaped organs which lie just below the rib cage, on both sides of a spine. Kidneys remove waste from the human body, helps to level the blood pressure of a body and also helps to keep the bones strong. The right amount of chemicals in the body is maintained by the kidneys itself, e.g.potassium and sodium (salt) in human blood. Lastly, kidneys help in the formation of the hormone which creates red blood cells.

5 Efforts to Increase Patient Access to Peritoneal Dialysis

5 Efforts to Increase Patient Access to Peritoneal Dialysis | Peritoneal dialysis | Scoop.it
Appropriate patients treated with peritoneal dialysis (PD) have the potential to achieve lower rates of hospitalization and mortality, higher quality of life and lower costs than patients treated with in-center hemodialysis (ICHD). Unfortunately, the number of patients choosing PD has been essentially flat industry-wide over the last several years, related to a shortage of PD dialysate. Now, the shortage is over, and multiple dialysate supply vendors are available, which reduces the risk of future dialysis component shortages. This change sets the stage for a return to the pre-shortage growth in PD.

Peritoneal Dialysis and Fluid Goals

Peritoneal Dialysis and Fluid Goals | Peritoneal dialysis | Scoop.it
Peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients are usually able to have a less restrictive meal plan than those on hemodialysis (HD). This is due to doing treatments daily. Frequent treatments allow toxins and fluid to be removed more often compared to HD treatments. Fluid goals for PD patients may not be the same as the goals for HD patients.

Latest Evolution of Peritoneal Dialysis Marketplace Applications Analysis 2018

Latest Evolution of Peritoneal Dialysis Marketplace Applications Analysis 2018 | Peritoneal dialysis | Scoop.it
Peritoneal Dialysis is a way of dialysis that use the body’s own peritoneal as the dialysis membrane. It makes the dialysis solution injected into the intraperitoneal, the use of the human body peritoneal filter, clear the blood of metabolic wastes and excess water, commonly known as “wash belly”. It is one of the renal failure therapies outside of hemodialysis. North America is the largest supplier and consumer of peritoneal dialysis machine with a production market share of 61% and a consumption market share of 32.9%. The second place is Europe, following North America with the consumption market share of 26.5% and the production market share of 21%. Japan is another important place with the consumption market share of 19%.Market competition is intense.

New project aims to study peritonitis infection in patients on peritoneal dialysis

New project aims to study peritonitis infection in patients on peritoneal dialysis | Peritoneal dialysis | Scoop.it

The project aims to identify high-risk patients and clinical practices associated with peritonitis risk to help further inform best practice guidelines for reducing risk. Secondary aims of the study include the creation of a meaningful approach for standardized reporting of peritonitis episodes and the promotion of knowledge dissemination strategies that foster continuous quality improvement activities and clinical treatment pathways for the prevention of peritonitis in peritonitis dialysis (PD) care settings.

22 Photos of How Chronic Illness Can Change People's Body (That They Are Not Hiding Anymore) | Peritoneal dialysis | Scoop.it
When life throws a chronic illness your way, you might find yourself struggling to reconcile your “old” self with the changes in lifestyle, diet or hobbies illness can bring about. But your physical appearance can also change – whether it’s a result of surgeries, medication side effects or a direct result of the illness itself. It can be tough to watch your body undergo changes, especially when you feel like you don’t have control over what’s happening. But it can also be a proud visual reminder of how strong you are and how much you’ve overcome.

Peritoneal dialysis catheter leakage following intermittent vacuum therapy

Peritoneal dialysis catheter leakage following intermittent vacuum therapy | Peritoneal dialysis | Scoop.it
Here we report the case of a patient who had performed peritoneal dialysis for 2 years without complications. Following postoperative intermittent vacuum therapy, he presented with extensive catheter leakage. Ultimately the patient had to be switched to haemodialysis and the catheter had to be removed. This case exemplifies that peritoneal dialysis patients have a substantial risk for noninfectious catheter-related complications using vacuum therapy.

Peritoneal dialysis complications and way to treatment

Peritoneal dialysis complications and way to treatment | Peritoneal dialysis | Scoop.it

Peritoneal dialysis is nothing but the mode of removal of unwanted produces from human blood and it is done when kidneys are unable to do this task satisfactorily.
In this method, a cleansing fluid flows through a tube (catheter) into the portion of human abdominal space and filters the waste produced and present in the blood. After a specific time, the corresponding fluid along with the filtered waste stuff runs out of the abdomen and further it is thrown out.

Impact of remote biometric monitoring on cost and hospitalization outcomes in peritoneal dialysis

Impact of remote biometric monitoring on cost and hospitalization outcomes in peritoneal dialysis | Peritoneal dialysis | Scoop.it
Introduction Peritoneal dialysis is a home-based therapy for individuals with end-stage renal disease. Telehealth, especially remote monitoring, is making inroads in managing this cohort. Methods We examined whether daily remote biometric monitoring (RBM) of blood pressure and weight among peritoneal dialysis patients was associated with changes in hospitalization rate and hospital length of stay, as well as outpatient, inpatient and overall cost of care. Results Outpatient visit claim payment amounts (in US dollars derived from CMS data) decreased post-intervention relative to pre-intervention for those at age 18-54 years. For certain subgroups, non- or nearly-significant changes were found among female and Black participants.

Vaccination practices in dialysis patients: A narrative review.

Vaccination practices in dialysis patients: A narrative review. | Peritoneal dialysis | Scoop.it
Vaccination rates are unacceptably low in dialysis patients and seroconversion rates are even lower; further, serological follow-up is generally poor. The particularly anergic immune system of the advanced chronic kidney disease patients is partly a cause of both high rates of infection and low rates of seroconversions. This narrative review is an effort to summarize current knowledge concerning the vaccination practices in dialysis patients with some specific recommendations based on these facts. Of particular interest is a new vaccine, the Zoster Recombinant, Adjuvanted Vaccine (Shingrix), which we will include in our discussion.
