Peritoneal dialysis (PD) catheter-related infections are a major predisposing factor to PD-related peritonitis (1–3). The primary objective of preventing and treating catheter-related infections is to prevent peritonitis.
Recommendations on the prevention and treatment of catheter-related infections were published previously together with recommendations on PD peritonitis under the auspices of the International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis (ISPD) in 1983 and revised in 1989, 1993, 1996, 2000, 2005, and 2010 (4–9). The present recommendations, however, focus on catheter-related infections, while peritonitis will be covered in a separate guideline.
These recommendations are evidence-based where such evidence exists. The bibliography is not intended to be comprehensive. When there are many similar reports on the same area, the committee prefers to refer to the more recent publications. In general, these recommendations follow the Grades of Recommendation Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) system for classification of the level of evidence and grade of recommendations in clinical guideline reports (10). Within each recommendation, the strength of recommendation is indicated as Level 1 (We recommend), Level2 (We suggest), or Not Graded, and the quality of the supporting evidence is shown as A (high quality), B (moderate quality), C (low quality), or D (very low quality). The recommendations are not meant to be implemented in every situation indiscriminately. Each PD unit should examine its own pattern of infection, causative organisms, and sensitivities and adapt the protocols according to local conditions as necessary. Although many of the general principles presented here could be applied to pediatric patients, we focus on catheter-related infections in adult patients. Clinicians who take care of pediatric PD patients should refer to the latest consensus guideline in this area for detailed treatment regimen and dosage (11).
In patients with end-stage renal disease treated with hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis, hypertension is very common and often poorly controlled. Blood pressure (BP) recordings obtained before or after hemodialysis display a J-shaped or U-shaped association with cardiovascular events and survival, but this most likely reflects the low accuracy of these measurements and the peculiar hemodynamic setting related with dialysis treatment. Elevated BP by home or ambulatory BP monitoring is clearly associated with shorter survival. Sodium and volume excess is the prominent mechanism of hypertension in dialysis patients, but other pathways, such as arterial stiffness, activation of the renin–angiotensin–aldosterone and sympathetic nervous systems, endothelial dysfunction, sleep apnea and the use of erythropoietin-stimulating agents may also be involved. Nonpharmacologic interventions targeting sodium and volume excess are fundamental for hypertension control in this population. If BP remains elevated after appropriate treatment of sodium-volume excess, the use of antihypertensive agents is necessary. Drug treatment in the dialysis population should take into consideration the patient’s comorbidities
and specific characteristics of each agent, such as dialysability. This document is an overview of the
This guidance represents the view of NICE, arrived at after careful consideration of the evidence available. When exercising their judgement, healthcare professionals are expected to take this guidance fully into account. However, the guidance does not override the individual responsibility of healthcare professionals to make decisions appropriate to the circumstances of the individual patient, in consultation with the patient and/or guardian or carer.
Commissioners and/or providers have a responsibility to implement the guidance, in their local context, in light of their duties to have due regard to the need to eliminate unlawful discrimination, advance equality of opportunity, and foster good relations. Nothing in this guidance should be interpreted in a way that would be inconsistent with compliance with those duties.
Commissioners and providers have a responsibility to promote an environmentally sustainable health and care system and should assess and reduce the environmental impact of implementing NICE recommendations wherever possible.
随着我国人民生活水平提高和生活方式改变,高尿酸血症的患病率呈逐年上升趋势,已经成为我国重要的公共卫生问题.肾脏疾病是高尿酸血症的重要病因,而高尿酸血症也是慢性肾脏病(chronic kidney disease,CKD)最常见的并发症之一.高尿酸血症可加重肾脏病的进展和心脑血管并发症的发生,是导致CKD、心脑血管疾病和代谢性疾病发生与发展的独立危险因素.目前我国尚缺乏针对肾脏疾病高尿酸血症诊治的临床实践指南.为此,我们围绕肾脏疾病高尿酸血症的流行病学、发病机制、诊断与病情评估、治疗等内容,制定《中国肾脏疾病高尿酸血症诊治的实践指南(2017版)》,以指导临床更规范地治疗肾脏疾病患者的高尿酸血症。
