Journal Watch - Incremental Peritoneal Dialysis
Can People do Urgent Start PD and Intermittent PD?
Yes. Among 169 people starting PD urgently, 111 had fewer than four exchanges per day (intermittent) and 58 received full-dose PD.

Infections, complications, and technique survival were similar as well.
