Representativeness of the PDOPPS cohort compared to the Australian PD population
CONCLUSION: Sampling methods used in PDOPPS allowed for good national representativeness of the included centres. However, representativeness of the unweighted PDOPPS sample was suboptimal in regard to some participant characteristics.PMID:34758648 | DOI:10.1177/08968608211056242 (Source: Peritoneal Dialysis International)

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Intraperitoneal (IP) vancomycin is recommended as one of the treatment options for gram-positive coverage in the management of peritoneal dialysis (PD)-associated peritonitis. There is a lack of literature supporting the optimal dose and approach to vancomycin therapeutic drug-level monitoring.METHODS: A retrospective chart review was conducted using the BC Renal Agency PROMIS Database and our hospital records from 1 June 2011 to 1 July 2019. Adult patients with PD-associated peritonitis who received IP v...
