Patients who have kidney failure undergo dialysis to remove salts and waste, maintain safe levels of chemicals in their blood and to maintain blood pressure. Ultrapure water is a critical component of renal dialysis; complying with stringent purity requirements as it has a direct impact on the patients’ health.
When the patient has been diagnosed with end stage kidney disease and requires dialysis, the dialysis machine is used to filter a patient's blood via a dialyser to remove excess water and waste products from the patients’ blood. The machine has a pump which circulates the patient’s blood which is controlled and monitored on the dialysis machine.
Patients with end-stage renal disease spend many hours each week undergoing Haemodialysis; therefore, it is imperative that they are seated on a comfortable chair. The chair has four motors allowing both the patient and the nurse to change the position according to clinical and comfort needs.
