Author information

The purpose of this paper is to describe the ICED, summarize outcomes of prior studies in which it was used, and describe the adaptations that have lead to the present instrument. We will then demonstrate its use in quantifying the burden of comorbid conditions in a sample of hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis patients from our center, and show the relationship between ICED levels and outcomes in peritoneal dialysis patients.
