High-Volume HDF improves patient survival
The Catalonian Online Haemodiafiltration Survival Study (ESHOL) published in February 2013 confirms Fresenius Medical Care’s conviction that every patient should be given the chance to benefit from haemodiafiltration (HDF) therapy with high volumes of substitution fluid (HighVolumeHDF). The primary outcome of the study was that HighVolumeHDF therapy significantly improves patient survival compared with conventional dialysis treatment. At this year’s ERA-EDTA Congress, HighVolumeHDF was the main focus of Fresenius Medical Care’s activities.
Therapy modality recently linked to impressive survival figures
In view of the recently published ESHOL study (Estudio de Supervivencia de Hemodiafitracion On-Line; On-Line Haemodiafiltration Survival Study) demonstrating that High Volume On-Line Hemodiafiltration (OL-HDF) therapy improves patients’ survival rate1, we would like to draw your attention towards our award winning 5008 therapy system.
