Abstract

In dialysis centres the major part of laboratory tests is indicated by the routine monitoring strategy of the centre and not by the evidence of a new complication to be diagnosed. The aim of our study was to define an improved strategy, minimizing financial costs without loss of information. Findings of routine laboratory check-up of eleven patients undergoing chronic intermittent peritoneal dialysis were analysed. Using univariate and multivariate functions a considerable part of the laboratory test results can be estimated or predicted. From pre-dialysis measurements on serum the post-dialysis serum creatinine urea and uric acid levels can be predicted. The serum level of protein and hemoglobin can be estimated using the results of previous tests (performed maximum 7 weeks earlier) and current measurements on dialysate.
