Questions About PD
For CAPD paients, the loading dose is given only ONCE – with the first exchange in which antibiotics are administered. Add the maintenance dose for each subsequent exchange.
For CCPD patients, when you dose the antibiotics continuously, you add the loading dose to a long-day dwell as you indicated, and the maintenance dose from the second column for Table 4 for each subsequent exchange – both day time and for night-time cycling. The loading dose again needs to be given on day 1, all subsequent doses even in the day dwell are the maintenance doses.
