Respiratory Function in CAPD
Respiratory function was studied in 15 CAPD patients with indwelling dialysate and in 10 patients before and after hemodialysis. Respiratory volumes and flow rates were normal in CAPD patients but oscillated with hemodialysis. CAPD was characterized by hyperventilation and increased O2 consumption while hemodialysis induced a restrictive defect attributed to pulmonary leukocyte sequestration. A modest restrictive defect in CAPD patients may relate to the intraabdominal fluid volume.
