Adapted APD (aAPD)

Adapted APD visual

According to Fischbach et al, aAPD offers better results using the same time and resources1

  • aAPD is possible without extra fluids or a longer amount of time
  • Efficiently uses existing treatment resources: better ultrafiltration and clearance with same, low glucose concentration, fluid volume and treatment time compared to conventional APD (cAPD)

Comparison after 45 days

Figure 4: figure created based on study data of Fischbach, M. et al., 2011 (page 7) comparing mean daily UF and sodium removal after 45 days, showing better UF (+100 ml/session) and sodium removal (+14 mmol/session) for aAPD1

Higher clearance with aAPD over glucose absorbed1
