By combining sequences of short dwell times and small fill volumes with long dwell times and large fill volumes, adapted PD promotes both the process of UF and clearance, at no additional time and cost, while reducing glucose absorption over the dialysis session.3
Maintain RRF and UF capacity to maximize output
RRF is important for fluid removal. Studies confirm that RRF can be preserved longer in patients using ultra-low GDP PD fluids compared to conventional PD fluids.4,5
Ultra-low GDP PD fluids can also help to reduce the deleterious effects of chronic exposure to the peritoneal membrane and to preserve the membrane function longer.6,7,8
Maintaining RRF is important for urine output and regulation of fluid status, thus the use of ultra-low GDP fluids can be an important part of your patient’s fluid management.
