Abstract

Volume overload is a common problem in peritoneal dialysis patients and may contribute to the high cardiac mortality in this patient population. Controlling volume status is difficult due to the lack of appropriate and accurate assessment of dry weight. This randomized, controlled study was conducted to test if the recent use of overhydration value (OH) provided by bioimpedance spectroscopy and patients' education would help to control overhydration.
