Times: 12 pm PST, 1 pm MST, 2 pm CST, 3 pm EST
Infectious complications are the most common cause of catheter loss resulting in the patient transferring to hemodialysis. This second part of the series on Managing PD Catheter Complications focuses on exit-site/tunnel infections, relapsing peritonitis and acute abdominal emergencies. The presentation includes an interactive digital algorithm, surgical management/treatment options and case study reviews to enhance learning and retention of material.
Upon completion of these sessions, you will be able to:
  • Evaluate the catheter exit-site/subcutaneous tunnel and diagnose infection
  • Discuss surgical management and treatment options for exit-site and tunnel infections
  • Detail the indications for simultaneous catheter replacement for relapsing peritonitis
  • Recognize acute abdominal emergences that may be initially mistaken for dialysis-related peritonitis
