  • Descripción del producto
    HomeChoice Automated PD system and HomeChoice Pro Automated PD system Baxter's || HomeChoice and HomeChoice Pro APD systems are designed to provide Automated Peritoneal Dialysis (APD) therapy for pediatric and adult renal patients. Their Fill volumes can range from 60 mL to 3000 mL. The HomeChoice and HomeChoice Pro APD systems are intended to be operated by: 1) Home patients whose physicians have prescribed this system. Patients, or their caregivers, must have received adequate training to use the system. 2) Clinicians who are using the system for patients under their care and under a prescription. Clinicians must have received adequate training to use the system. Since drain and volume requirements vary among patients, both the HomeChoice and HomeChoice Pro APD systems have a choice of modes, either Standard Fill Mode (Standard Mode) or Low Fill Mode. The dialysis center selects the Fill mode for the patient before therapy begins. The HomeChoice APD system and HomeChoice Pro APD system are the same in operation, except for the Pro Card and modem features that are only available with the HomeChoice Pro APD system. The Pro Card feature stores prescription and therapy data. The data can be transferred between your cycler and your clinician. The two systems use the same disposable sets and solutions. They perform the same therapies the same way.
