Hello,I was wondering if anyone has had experience with PD patient who also have COPD and/or reactive airway disease, and if so, how they tolerated it? I researched this a little bit, but could only find articles referring to pt’s with mild COPD, and it basically stated that they might do better with CCPD/supine PD then CAPD, but have not found any information on patients who have more frequent exacerbations.

I have had severe COPD patients on PD but I think it might be a case of trying it out and seeing how they go.
