Quote of the Day: "Everybody's got a past. The past does not equal the future unless you live there." - Tony Robbins
Many Chronic Kidney Disease Patients (CKD) who receive or may at any point in time need to receive hemodialysis through a fistula, must protect the veins in their arm. If your arm is stuck with a needle incorrectly or a blood pressure cuff is applied then you may damage your veins and make it difficult to create and near impossible to maintain a fistula.
Hemodialysis access failure is a major cause of hospitalization and death. But, now there is something YOU can do. KidneyBuzz.com is working along with Healthcare Professionals, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Nurses, and Doctors to protect Dialysis patients' fistulas by looking-out for the No BP/No Stick alert wristband.
Now, we just need patients wearing them. Get your No BP/No Stick wristband today to help ensure the protection of your fistula arm, and avoid painful fistula replacement surgery or worse.
