Flow-QC Haemodialysis Monitor

A New Standard for ESRD Care

A new standard of care for ESRD patients emerged with introduction of the Transonic HD03 Hemodialysis Monitor a decade ago through groundbreaking ultrasound dilution technology. Flow-QC vascular access patency and dialysis adequacy monitoring, endorsed by the National Kidney Foundation's K/DOQI Guidelines, has become routine in dialysis clinics around the world. Transonic Flow-QC Hemodialysis surveillance improves the quality of care for ESRD patients who experience less access discomfort, dysfunction and fewer access failures. Patients become empowered to assume responsibility for their vascular accesses, their link to life, and miss fewer dialysis treatments. Less expensive out-patient procedures correct deteriorating accesses and replace costly hospitalizations for failed vascular accesses.
