Rockwell's first product Dialysate
Triferic, which launched in May, is mixed with liquid bicarbonate to deliver iron to patients via the dialysate
Peritoneal dialysis uses the lining of the abdomen and a cleaning solution called dialysate
to clean blood.
Rockwell Medical announced positive data from two studies evaluating intravenous and peritoneal dialysate
formulations of Triferic, the only therapy approved by the U.S.
Its products include specialized medical device reprocessing systems for endoscopy and renal dialysis, advanced water purification equipment, sterilants, disinfectants and cleaners, sterility assurance monitoring products for hospitals and dental clinics, disposable infection control products primarily for dental and GI endoscopy markets, dialysate
concentrates, hollow fibre membrane filtration and separation products.
Elevation of bicarbonate concentration in the dialysate
would be an acceptable alternative for better management of metabolic acidosis in this setting but carries a potential increase in risk of mortality (5).
The imported APD machine had a more economic fuselage, while the domestic APD machine had an automatic cycle of liquor dialysis intraperitoneus and facilitated improvements in body movement, dialysate
storage, storage battery, and man-machine dialog function.
Trials on RCA in CRRT and sustained low-efficiency dialysis were excluded due to significantly longer hours and lower dialysate
flow rate (DFR) (London Health Sciences Centre, 2016; Marshall et al., 2004; Morabito et al., 2014).
Commercially available dialysis solution (Prismasol BO (b)) was used as a dialysate
and replacement fluid to promote the process of diffusion and convection, effluent dose rate was set at 30-40ml/kg/hr.
is primarily composed of water, and water that is not adequately treated to remove contaminants can cause injury and death to patients on HD.
The most common cause of cloudy dialysate
in patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD) is bacterial peritonitis such that the home dialysis unit policies and procedures include protocols for specimen collection and initial antibiotic therapy algorithms to avoid delays in diagnosis and treatment.
Purified water predominantly contains heterotrophic bacteria, common in watery environments, especially from Pseudomonadales class, which may grow in water pipes and hemodialysis (HD) machines, therefore contaminating the dialysate
(Bommer & Jaber, 2006).
