As a growing number of Chronic Kidney Disease patients are learning, Redsense is a breakthrough technology that alarms to avoid the life-threatening complication of bleeding-out during Dialysis Treatments. For years patients and loved ones have signed petitions via KidneyBuzz.com to bring this critical Redsense alarm to their Dialysis Centers and local hospitals where they may Dialyze. Well, your hard work is finally starting to payoff with top Hospitals and Dialysis Centers beginning to order and utilize the critical technology for their patients.
Many Chronic Kidney Disease and Dialysis patients do not recognize that Five percent (5%) of the patients responding to the safety survey reported that they had experienced their needles becoming dislodged during the prior three months. Bleeding out during Dialysis is a major concern for most patients and can leave them feeling extremely drained for many days after the occurrence due to loss of blood, and bleeding-out during Dialysis can even be life-threatening. Personal Injury Lawyer, Mike Ferrara (The Ferrara Law Firm) said, "about 1 in 5 Dialysis patients die every year in this country, and many of these deaths are preventable." Redsense catches small bleedouts early which helps to avoid any major issues. This is great because it gives patients peace of mind and helps to lower anxiety about their necessary Dialysis Treatments.
We are proud to announce that three of the top five Largest Dialysis Organizations in the United States - Fresenius, DaVita, and American Renal - have stepped up and now use the Redsense Blood Loss Detection System to protect patients. What's more, three of the top five Best Hospitals for Chronic Kidney Disease and Dialysis Patients - the Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, and New York Presbyterian Hospital - have also adopted Redsense for their Hemodialysis patients. Your voice is being heard!

"It is physically impossible to continuously monitor the access site of just one person, let alone multiple access sites," said Sebastien Bollue (Redsense Commercial Operations Manager). That is why Redsense is critical since it is easy to use and offers patients reliability and much-needed continuous surveillance of their access sites during Dialysis Treatments.
Let's not stop now: Sign the below petition to help continue to grow the use of the Redsense Blood Loss Detection System in every area of Dialysis including In-Center Hemodialysis, Nocturnal Hemodialysis, Home Hemodialysis Treatments, as well as Hospital Dialysis Units:
