Fresenius Medical Care North America introduced the first dialysis machine with volumetric fluid balancing, allowing precise water removal and increasing patient comfort during the treatment.
The introduction of advanced dialysis machines made it possible to introduce dialyzer membranes made of polysulfone, a synthetic material producing outstanding clearance performance coupled with superior biocompatibility.
Today, Fresenius Medical Care is the leading provider of dialysis machines and disposables in the United States with a system of products designed to work together.
Fresenius Medical Care has continued it’s tradition of providing intradialytic monitoring and feedback tools with the introduction of the 2008T hemodialysis delivery system. The 2008T represents the next generation of hemodialysis delivery systems offering immediate access to dialysis treatment and vital medical information at patient chair side.
Revolutionary New Feature on 2008T ! - Clinical Data eXchange (CDX):
- Allows for the transfer of clinical data between the 2008T and a MIS system.
- Exclusively available on the 2008T
The CDX allows for real-time access to lab values, medication profiles, progress notes, medical reports, trending data, and other treatment related data. This information is available from each and every dialysis station that is equipped with a 2008T machine. Clinicians no longer need to leave the patient station to gain access to information via free-standing computers in the clinic. Clinicians simply use the CDX toggle key to navigate between dialysis treatment screens and the MIS system.
Other Features Available for the 2008T Machine include:
- Blood Volume Monitor
- On-Line Clearance Monitor
- Access Flow Measurement
- DiaSafe Plus Filter
- Crit-Line Monitor e-Learning course
