I have a patient who is transitioning from hemo to CAPD, initially I drained her and she drained over 1000 mls of dark amber colored effluent. I infused her with 1.5% dextrose solution 1000 mls she dwelled for an hour and then drained 1500 mls of dark amber colored hazy effluent. I relayed this info to my supervisor who asked if she had hx of liver failure, liver enzymes were good, I obtained cultures and cell count, called the doctor. Doc said she has ascites from heart failure, hx of chf, that is why he suggested her to go on pd, for fluid removal, he reports she has a good residual. I asked him for guidance as to how much fluid to work with as I am afraid to put her in hypovolemic shock. He suggested low volumes, her bsa <1.7, I am going to start with 1000mls and see how she responds. I have all kinds of concerns , this is not my typical Pd pt and I have been practicing for a little over a year, any suggestions ?
