My program has been using the B Braun Dialog machine in our home hemo program since 2000. We have the initial 4.43 version. We switched from the old Cobe C2Rx retrofit with the UFCM.
The machines have performed well in the home with minimial service calls. The machine has been very user friendly to both patients and their helpers. We are able to complete training in 4 weeks and patients are pretty confident at discharge.
Initially we had the patients use a diskette to store their dialysis information from run to run but have since changed this. We now have them enter their dialysis orders each treatment.
We have been happy with the Braun machines.
