Abstract

In Ukraine, about 12% of end-stage renal disease patients are treated by peritoneal dialysis (PD). In contrast to the hemodialysis population, PD patients receive treatment at home, which reduces the likelihood of SARS-CoV-2. However, older age, diabetes, hypertension and many other comorbid conditions of PD patients significantly increase the risk of infection. Therefore, maximum adherence to preventive measures for COVID-19 by PD patients and medical staff is an urgent and mandatory task.

Based on the published research on COVID-19, the expert group of the Ukrainian Association of Nephrologists and Kidney Transplant Specialists has created the Adapted Clinical Guidelines for the Management of Peritoneal Dialysis Facilities and Services During the COVID-19 pandemic.

All of the following clinical guidelines have a level of evidence of 2C.
