I know this topic has been brought up before, but would like to bring it up again…Has anyone been experiencing the Dialysate running out before the end of your treatment both on PureFlow and Bagged Dialysate… This has been happening to me over the last several months and it seems as if its not a big deal when discussed. The treatment will sometmes end withmore than 10 minutes left and the bags will be dry. We will sometimes get an alarm, and sometimes just get the 000’s.
The answer I seem to receive is that as log as I get all of my dialysate, I am getting my treatment in.
My only issue with this is that each time this happens, There ae at least 2 Liters of blood that could have went through if the treatment went the full length. In a week, that is approx 12 liters, and in a month can be approx 48 liters blood that could have been cleane. Also, that is approx 60 minute of treatment time per week missed.
NxStage is aware of this and suposidly looking into it.
What are everyone else’s findings…
