The Redsense Blood Loss Alarm provides individuals dialyzing at home with the security and peace of mind knowing that their access is being continuously monitored.
Above and beyond saving money, the advantages of home hemodialysis are many. Blood pressure fluctuations become more manageable, sleep patterns improve along with energy levels, diet becomes less restricted and, above all, patients live better and longer lives. Despite this, 97% of hemodialysis is carried out in the clinic. And while home treatment is not for everyone, learning to manage a hemodialysis machine in the bedroom can improve the quality of life for a vast number of patients.
How to send a patient home with your hand on your heart
For a patient who is physically able and alert, one of the biggest obstacles to home treatment is the fear associated with needles and self-canulation. And while the idea of inserting needles into veins and connecting your blood supply to a machine is worrying, the thought of becoming disconnected during sleep is enough to unsettle anybody. Because Redsense continuously monitors the access point, sounding the alarm at the first drop of blood, its use allows everyone to feel at ease.
