Supplemental (NG) Feedings of Infants Undergoing Continuous Peritoneal Dialysis
Continuous peritoneal dialysis (CPD), continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) or continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis (CCPD), have become the accepted mode of therapy for infants with ESRD. Used in conjunction with a prescribed nutritional program, the infant on CPD can grow to a weight of eight to 10 kilograms, which is necessary for transplantation to be performed.
