Formatted Abstract/Summary
In 2003, continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis was used to treat 14% of all dialysis patients (16% in 2002), and automated peritoneal dialysis 9% (8% in 2002).
Together, these accounted for 70% of all home dialysis, a figure which has been stable for a number of years (fig 6.1). Of the 17,523 patients, 4% had had at least five years of continuous peritoneal dialysis (fig 6.2). The proportion of all home dialysis patients on peritoneal dialysis in each State ranged from 60% (New South Wales), to 97% (Northern Territory) (fig 6.1).
The prevalence of automated peritoneal dialysis increased 19%, from 612 patients in 2002 to 726 patients in 2003. In relation to age, the proportion of all dialysis patients (65-74 years and 75-84 years) using peritoneal dialysis was 27% and 23% (27% and 25% respectively in 2002); range 16% (>= 85 years) to 89% (0-14 years) (fig 6.9).
