Summary

In continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis a method of sterilizing the connector between the 2 L bag and transfer set with povidone-iodine has been developed along with double clamping of the transfer set. There was a profound reduction in the incidence of peritonitis which fell from 1 attack per 19 patient weeks to 1 attack per 376 patient weeks.
