  • Edit prescriptions for both continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) and automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) modalities
  • Download and evaluate treatment outcomes for APD
  • Perform advanced prescription modelling
  • Perform fluid management with the body composition monitor (BCM), and use these results in the adequacy module
  • Customise the settings to suit your working environment and patient mix

Fresenius Medical Care offers a haemodialysis product and service portfolio that includes integrated information technology solutions. TDMS, which includes a combination of hardware and software components, provides a seamless connection between dialysis and information technology. It prepares and pre-sets the dialysis devices prior to therapy and records vital information as follows:

  • The patient's weight before and after dialysis Details of the treatment process
  • Additional laboratory tests performed during dialysis
  • Medication doses
  • Events during dialysis
  • Predefined workflows (in checklist format)
  • Changes in treatment processes
  • Changes in consumables

TDMS enables the therapy manager to:

  • Create and edit dialysis treatment prescriptions
  • Create and edit medication prescriptions
  • Maintain and interpret laboratory data
  • Generate reports

Additional modules also provide the following services:

  • Communication with higher hospital information systems (HIS)
  • Provision of data to external quality management systems
  • Flexible Crystal reports that can be exported to MS Excel. Charting of data is also possible in this powerful reporting function


The 4008S Next Generation haemodialysis machine and the 5008/5008S/6008 therapy system combined with TDMS have been designed to be compatible with a variety of external medical devices such as scales and analysers. The modular design of the system also allows for a variety of options and combinations with other information technology systems.
