Background: Approximately 11% of the US population is affected by CKD (US Renal Data System, 2007). Of those with CKD, 1% progress to kidney failure which is treated only by dialysis or transplant. In 2003, 453,000 Americans required dialysis or transplantation. This is projected to increase to 651,000 by 2010. Expenditures related to renal replacement therapy account for 16.5% of Medicare spending. This is twice the amount spent just 10 years ago.
Aim and objectives: To check the association of socioeconomic status with peritonitis technique survival.
Materials and methods: A sample size of 155 produces a two-sided 90% confidence interval with a width equal to 0.200 when the sample correlation is 0.500. Hence a total of one hundred (155) patients on CAPD and APD will be recruited.
Results: Majority of subjects 82 (52.9%) were in the score 3 (upper middle) socio-economic status group and 73 (47.1%) of the subjects were score 2 (high) socio-economic status group. Majority of subjects 78 (50.3%) were hyper tension, diabetes mellitus and end stage renal disease, 64 (41.3%) of the subjects were hyper tension, and end stage renal disease, 13 (8.4%) of the subject were diabetes mellitus and end stage renal disease.
Conclusion: significantly higher risk of treatment failure in low-income patients than high-income patients, the reinforcement of healthy policies in such population is additionally beneficial. National expenditure on health and medical insurance should be improved, especially for the patients with low individual incomes and the medical insurance policies for low-income patients should be improved.
