79263-0Creatinine [Moles/volume] in Peritoneal dialysis fluid --overnight dwellActive

Term Description

A Peritoneal Equilibration Test (PET) is used to assess transport properties of the peritoneal membrane in patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis. Patients arrive at the dialysis unit in the morning with their overnight dwell fluid still in the abdomen. The overnight fluid is completely drained and sampled for testing. In the classic PET, 2000 ml of a 2.27% glucose solution is instilled and peritoneal dialysis is begun. Ten ml samples are drawn at time 0, 2, and 4 hours to measure creatinine, urea, and glucose. The PET assesses the rate of solute equilibration between peritoneal capillary blood and dialysate based on the ratio of the solute concentrations in dialysate and plasma (D/P). PET results are used to adjust various aspects of a patient's peritoneal dialysis regimen, including dwell time, number of exchanges, and dialysis volume and composition. [PMID: 7474677]

Part Description

LP14355-9   Creatinine
Creatinine or creatine anhydride, is a breakdown product of creatine phosphate in muscle. The loss of water molecule from creatine results in the formation of creatinine. It is transferred to the kidneys by blood plasma, whereupon it is eliminated by glomular filtration and partial tubular excretion. Creatinine is usually produced at a fairly constant rate and measuring its serum level is a simple test. A rise in blood creatinine levels is observed only with marked damage to functioning nephrons; therefore this test is not suitable for detecting early kidney disease. Creatine and creatinine are metabolized in the kidneys, muscle, liver and pancreas.
