Operational efficiency

Hemodialysis involves a large number of demanding manual operations all around the hemodialysis machine. The ergonomic design and the logical operating structure of the 4008S classix permit easy handling as well as fast and intuitive programming of the treatment parameters. Important treatment values are represented graphically on the 10.4” TFT-LCD monitor, which supports easy comprehension of the ongoing treatment, and provides a fast overview of the treatment history. The Blood Pressure Monitor (BPM) is fully integrated, which further simplifies handling for the therapy providers. In combination with the Therapy Data Management System (TDMS) daily dialysis practice can be organized in a more effective and efficient manner taking full advantage of an online data acquisition and management tool.

OCM® – Online Clearance Monitor

In the meantime numerous studies have demonstrated that morbidity and mortality rates are closely correlated to the delivered dialysis dose.2,3 The Online Clearance Monitor (OCM®) enables the continuous monitoring of:

  • The effective in-vivo urea clearance (K)
  • The accumulated cleared plasma (Kt) or the current dialysis dose administered (Kt/V)
  • The plasma sodium concentration: possible deviations to the prescribed therapy goal can be detected and corrected immediately during treatment* without incurring additional expenses for disposables or staff efforts

The non-invasive and precise Kt/V assessment is consistent with conventional blood sample-based methods enabled by urea distribution volume V measured with the BCM-Body Composition Monitor.4

Delivering quality in therapy

DIASAFE® plus – Dialysis Fluid Filter
DIASAFE®plus – Dialysis Fluid Filter

DIASAFE®plus – Dialysis Fluid Filter

The quality and purity of the dialysis fluid are of major concern in modern-day renal replacement therapies, as large volumes of dialysis fluid come into contact with the patient’s bloodstream during each treatment. Endotoxins present in contaminated dialysis fluid may elicit undesirable acute reactions and influence the long-term outcome of patients on chronic hemodialysis. The DIASAFE®plus dialysis fluid filter enables the production of ultrapure dialysis fluid. This is attributed to the excellent endotoxin-retention capabilities of its Fresenius Polysulfone® fibers and an intelligent safety concept, based on:

  • Functional control of filter integrity
  • Automatic surveillance of filter lifetime
  • Aseptic connection technology

Ultrapure dialysate fluid is acknowledged to be an integral part of all contemporary dialysis equipment. Naturally the DIASAFE®plus is an essential part of the basic configuration of all current Fresenius Medical Care dialysis machines.

bibag® – Dry Bicarbonate Concentrate
bibag® – Dry Bicarbonate Concentrate

bibag® – Dry Bicarbonate Concentrate

To avoid the potential risk of microbiological contamination through liquid bicarbonate concentrate, the bicarbonate buffer is always supplied as a dry substance. In addition to this excellent hygienic standard, the bibag® is characterized by:

  • Easy and ergonomic handling
  • Minimum storage space required
  • Ecological benefits due to reduced waste volume and less transport weight
