The authors developed a computer-aided diagnosis system that includes a simple clinical test for the chronic renal disease patient who needs an integrated approach that combines both peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis (PD-HD therapy). In this case study, the system simulated and estimated the dialysis outcome, the ultrafiltration volume and nutritional analysis by employing a pharmacokinetic model, and assessed the peritoneal permeable enhancement that can be a grave complication with peritoneal dialysis. This system requires only a minimum amount of nursing time and may be able to predict the optimal treatment schedule for PD-HD therapy and provide therapeutic monitoring in long-term peritoneal dialysis.
