An essential consideration in dialyzing
an infant is the need for thorough monitoring throughout the procedure.
One hundred PHD users are a testament to the significant improvement in how well patients feel after dialyzing

A CAPD patient infuses dialyzing
solution into his or her abdomen through an implanted catheter, which eliminates the need to use needles or to have blood leave the body, as is required in traditional hemodialysis.

on the PHD System.
Previously both the measuring system and the dialyzing
micro system of the sensor were coupled via an internal circuit that was driven by a micro-pump.
