- KAXA22 Chronic peritoneal dialysis
Chronic peritoneal dialysis is to a large extent performed at the patients home. Norway has however a special code for home dialysis:
- A0093 Hjemmebasert peritonealdialyse
This code has no properties which is in contrast to KAXA22 to which it is linked. The perform peritoneal dialysis at home needs resources, since the material need to be delivered to the patient. However, if this arranged is Norway outside the hospital system, it may be that this is very low resource intensive from hospital point of view.
If the latter is the case, we need a special code for dialysis at home in the NCSP+.
Either a new NCSP+ code without properties or the A0093 is given the same properties as KAXA22.
Grouping either based on dx or to dialysis groups.
