5008 CorDiax - Beyond your expectations

Cardioprotection - at the heart of long-term haemodialysis

Chronic kidney disease (CKD), as well as dialysis itself, can lead to cardiovascular alterations such as atherosclerosis and left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), the largest causes of death in haemodialysis patients.1

Fresenius Medical Care's mission is to enable nephrologists to provide the best possible therapy for their long-term haemodialysis patients in order to minimise the risk of CVD.

The central point of Cardioprotective Haemodialysis is haemodiafiltration. By achieving high subsitution volumes, HighVolumeHDF® therapy is credited with more effective elimination of middle molecules. With its numerous positive effects on cardiovascular risk factors, HighVolumeHDF® is currently considered as the most efficient renal replacement therapy.

Fresenius Medical Care is focused on continuous development and advancement to meet the changing requirements of dialysis today. Therefore, we are always in search of opportunities for improvement. The result of these efforts is our new product line CorDiax, which provides products for superior cardio-protective therapies.

Our latest machine software upgrades the 5008 Therapy System to the CorDiax product line, where it builds a perfect synergy with our FX CorDiax dialysers.

The highlights of this software are an innovative method for performing HighVolumeHDF® - AutoSubplus - and sophisticated safety features for venous access monitoring, allowing you to provide highly safe and effective treatment to your patients.
