Despite significant improvements in the quality and efficacy of hemodialysis therapy in recent years, cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death for dialysis patients. Today, almost half of all dialysis patients die from cardiovascular complications.
As part of the standard setup procedure for each and every dialysis session, the dialyzer is primed. This involves flushing the dialyzer with saline or dialysate solutions to remove air and any particulates, and to ensure there are no leaks. By integrating our proprietary technology, the H-Guard™ Priming Solution is designed to help hemodialysis patients feel better, and suffer fewer cardiovascular complications.
The H-Guard Priming Solution will be used as part of the existing priming procedure, with the aim of maintaining the existing workflow steps and cycle-times.
The H-Guard Priming Solution is under development and not available for clinical use.
