Milestones in Dialysis
Intra-Dialytic Monitoring Throughout the late 1990’s and continuing today, intra-dialytic monitoring of hemodynamic parameters is an active area of research. Providing the nephrology community with intra-dialytic monitoring capability was first introduced by Fresenius Medical Care with blood pressure and sodium monitoring on the 2008C system. Fresenius Medical Care continued its tradition of providing intra-dialytic feedback to promote immediate clinical intervention throughout the 2008® series hemodialysis platform. UF Profiling and OnLine Clearance monitoring, all available for use on the 2008 hemodialysis series, provide nephrologists with the opportunity to utilize intra-dialytic changes as a feedback control parameter allowing easy evaluation of the patient’s treatment status.
