On the evidence of observations comprising approximately 200 treatments by peritoneal dialysis (PD), the advantages of the weekly 3 X 9-h schedule over the 2 X 24-h schedule are pointed out. Utilization of dialysing fluid per week was 45.11 versus 54.61. The improved general condition of the patients and the favourable changes of the biochemical parameters were in support of this dialysis strategy. The use of the type PDK-8 automated apparatus designed by the authors, is recommended as being simple to handle, labour-saving and apt to minimize the hazard of peritonitis.
