Can I use prismaflex machine to perform chronic intermittent hemodialysis?

Hello,

I would think that using PrismaFlex for conventional dialysis would be prohibitively expensive. The typical dialysate flow rate is 500 cc / min, or roughly 30L per hour, or six 5 litre bags. This would amount to 24 bags for a 4 hr dialysis session. So while theoretically possible, I wouldn't think it's practical.

All the best,

Dr. Jordan Weinstein
