Patients on peritoneal dialysis need effective antibiotic treatment of peritoneal infection
What is it about?
Much is not known about the correct dosing and length of treatment in PD peritonitis, in particular the dosing of patients on automated peritoneal dialysis as opposed to CAPD, and in those with some remaining kidney function.
Why is it important?
This topic is important because inadequate dosing in PD peritonitis may lead to failure to resolve or the infection quickly returning.
