Automated Peritoneal Dialysis
There have been virtually no new developments in the whole concept of APD drainage systems for many years. In general the principle has stayed the same. The U-Drain APD system has the potential to revolutionise the care treatment pathway for Baxter/Fresenius APD Machine users as well as offering patients a choice as to how they live their daily life.
U-Drain APD works on the principle of using gravity in much the same way the current drainage bags or drainage line works. However, U-Drain APD employs the hygienic method of taking waste Dialysis solution produced overnight, and disposing it directly into the main drainage system of the patient’s house.
U-Drain APD is a permanently installed bag-less drainage system for patients that would normally use a 15ltr drainage bag or 12ft drainage line to facilitate the drainage of an APD Machine. Once the U-drain APD drainage system is installed, there is no need to supply either drainage bags or drain lines.
