Abstract

Peritoneal dialysis (PD) exchanges require sterile equipment, supplies, and technique. Sterility may be maintained with single use. However, when equipment such as lines and transfer sets are used repeatedly, disinfection techniques become a critical aspect in preventing infectious complications. Techniques available for disinfection of lines and transfer sets in PD will be reviewed. Copyright © 2007 S. Karger AG.
