We combined some activities, such as the different categories of phone calls, peritonitis diagnosis and follow-up, collection of adequacy test samples (Kt/V), and performing the standard peritoneal equilibration test (PET) and its calculation.
According to the initial peritoneal equilibration test result, patients were divided into two groups: Higher transport group (HT, including high and high average transport) and lower transport group (LT, including low and low-average transport).
The Kt/V peritoneal was low and peritoneal equilibration test was of a high transporter.
The objectives of the audits were to examine staff compliance on three renal policies--vascular catheter exit site care; peritoneal equilibration test (PET); and peritoneal dialysis (PD) Adequacy; and to develop strategies to improve staff adherence to clinical policies.
