The system enables freedom of mobility, increased dialysis efficacy as well as enhanced quality of life for ESRD patients
In peritoneal dialysis (PD), a PD solution is instilled in the abdominal cavity. Waste products, salts and water are dialyzed across the peritoneum from the blood space into the PD solution. This process is initially effective but diminishes within hours and the PD solution must be replaced.
The Carry Life renal device recirculates the PD solution through the device and removes the waste products, salts and excess water. Glucose is delivered to the recirculating solution to compensate for the consumption and the PD solution is returned back to the abdomen.
