									         CAPD
The Gold Standard in Paediatric
           Dialysis
CAPD
•   No nights tied to machine
•   Less training
•   Cheaper than CCPD
•   Comparable to CCPD in terms of
    dialysis adequacy and nutritional
    status. Gao et al. AJN 1999
CAPD
• More flexible
• Less need for ‘high bags’
• Residual renal function declined
  rapidly in APD patients whereas it
  was well preserved in CAPD
  patients. Hufnagel et al. NDT
  1999.
CAPD
• Infection rate lower than CCPD.
  Yishak et al. Adv Perit Dial 2001
• Ease of use
• Steady, constant dialysis, not
  intermittent.
CAPD
•   No need for alterations to house
•   Simple to learn
•   Easier for family to go on holiday
•   Just better, much, much better
    than CCPD for all but the smallest
    of infants!!
