PD Gets a Short-term Boost from Baxter
If your clinic wants to offer cycler PD to more people, you’re in luck—at least, in May and June. Since cycler PD use has declined, Baxter is temporarily raising clinic allocations from 70% to 90%. Those who start cycler PD in May & June can continue after the supply drops back to 70% in July. To learn more, contact Baxter HomeCare Services at (800) 284-4060.
