Date:4/27/2010

Adimea, developed by B. Braun and already in use in Europe, is designed for use with B. Braun's Dialog+ Hemodialysis System, provides healthcare professionals with the information they need to give patients the optimal dialysis dose (Kt/V).

U.S. FDA-cleared, the Adimea process uses spectroscopy principles to measure dialysis efficiency by determining the reduction in the molar concentration of urinary excreted substances in the spent dialysate by transmitting an ultraviolet (UV) light source through the dialysate. The highly reliable and precise instrument allows the online determination and continual monitoring of current Kt/V values throughout the patient's entire treatment.  

"Adimea is a very important advancement in renal therapies," said Samuel Amory, Vice President, Renal Therapies Division for B. Braun Medical Inc. "It helps healthcare professionals give their patients an optimal dialysis dose and allows them to adjust treatment parameters for the benefit of patients even during treatment."  

Easy to use and efficient, Adimea requires the entry of only one patient parameter – the patient's weight before dialysis. It saves time by eliminating the determination and entry of the urea volume (V), which enables healthcare professionals to focus more attention on patient care.

For more information or to order Adimea, call 800-848-2066.
