I represent Redsense Medical, a medtech company with an alarm that is the first ever developed for the specific purpose to to detect veneous needle dislodgement during hemodialysis. It replaces enuresis pads and similar methods. It’s being launched this year and we expect FDA approval during the summer.
It would be valuable to hear your experiences as professionals on this issue, how often and during what circumstances have you heard of the venous needle disconnecting in home dialysis? What were the consequences? What measures are taken to prevent this from happening?
