Despite significant improvements in the quality and efficacy of hemodialysis therapy in recent years, cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death for dialysis patients. Today, almost every other dialysis patient dies from cardiovascular complications1.
Fresenius Medical Care supports nephrologists worldwide in minimizing their patients’ risks for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
HighVolumeHDF therapy as well as innovative membranes like Helixoneplus and modern monitoring features like the Blood Volume Monitor, together with ultrapure dialysis fluid, help minimize CVD risk factors and significantly improve hemodialysis therapy.

With our portfolio for Peritoneal Dialysis and Home Hemodialysis, you can be confident of having everything you need to manage the outcomes for your patients while meeting their personal preferences.
Dialysis essentially replicates the functions of the kidneys in patients with chronic kidney failure. Hemodialysis and Peritoneal Dialysis take over the critical tasks of the kidneys, removing waste materials, toxins, excess salt and fluids from the body.
Dialysis treatment does not entirely replace all the functions of the kidneys, meaning that patients almost always need to take certain medications regularly. These include antihypertensive treatments, drugs for lowering phosphate levels in the blood, vitamins and medicines that boost the production of red blood cells to prevent anemia.

Innovative Information Technology to assist Healthcare Professionals in caring for their dialysis patients.
The ability to capture obtain and analyse patient-related data is crucial for both dialysis treatment monitoring and planning. With this in mind, Fresenius Medical Care has developed innovative information technology application to assist healthcare professionals in caring for their dialysis patients.
Peritoneal dialysis (PD) management software PatientOnLine has been developed for monitoring patients undergoing Peritoneal Dialysis while Therapy Data Management System (TDMS) has been developed to monitor those undergoing Haemodialysis.
Patients undergoing Haemodialysis are exposed to large volumes of water in the form of dialysis fluid. In fact, a person undergoing Haemodialysis may come into contact with more fluid than the average healthy person in their entire lifetime.1
As part of our commitment to supporting clinicians and their patients undergoing dialysis, Fresenius Medical Care provides innovative water treatment products and services for dialysis therapy.
