Formatted Abstract/Summary
In 2006, continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis was used to treat 11% of all dialysis patients (12% in 2005), and automated peritoneal dialysis 11% (9% in 2005). Together, these accounted for 69% of all home dialysis, a figure which has remained stable for the past number of years (Figure 6.1). Of the 20,340 patients who have ever received peritoneal dialysis, 4% had experienced at least five years of continuous peritoneal dialysis.
The proportion of all home dialysis patients on peritoneal dialysis in each State ranged from 62% (New South Wales), to 92% (South Australia). The prevalence of automated peritoneal dialysis increased 19% in 2006 (969 patients) from a 6% increase in 2005 (814 patients), 4% in 2004 (766 patients) and 19% in 2003 (737) patients. The proportion of all dialysis patients receiving PD varied with age.
