NxStage from Fresenius Medical Care Launches Speedswap for Critical Care Dialysis

Managing critically ill patients is complex. For that reason, the NxStage System One S with NxView was designed to be simple yet versatile, allowing you to deliver the prescribed dose to your patients whether you choose continuous hemofiltration, hemodialysis, or slow continuous ultrafiltration treatment modalities.

With a uniquely designed volumetric balancing system, fluid accuracy is achieved without the need for scales, completely eliminating scale-based alarms and interruptions in therapy due to emptying waste bags. The ability to hang up to 29 L of fluid at once and direct-to-drain effluent disposal may decrease workload and provides more time for nurses to focus on their patients.

Risks and Responsibilities

Renal replacement therapy, as with any medical therapy is not without risks. The decision of which therapy and medical device to use should be made by the physician, based on previous experience and on the individual facts and circumstances of the patient.

There is no literature demonstrating that one therapy is clinically better than the other.

The use of anticoagulation is at the discretion of the prescribing physician.
