We thank you for your question. All PD units should have policies and procedures in place for managing patients with signs and symptoms of peritonitis. We’ve given you here the reference and link for the latest update of the ISPD peritonitis recommendations (1). You might also find helpful our local guidelines – go to pages 133-141 (2).
