Vasc-Alert is a unique vascular access surveillance program for hemodialysis patients that allows care providers the ability to detect and respond to potential access complications before they arise. The program works by analyzing treatment data to derive the intra-access pressure at the arterial and venous needle sites. When the pressure trend increases, it is an indication that stenosis may be growing. Weekly reports alert staff to possible issues allowing for quick evaluation and invention. Read More..
Vasc-Alert tracks increased pressure as stenosis develops
Random Controlled Study Indicates Benefit to Early Intervention
A recent random controlled study demonstrates that intervention in an access with >50% stenosis is beneficial even in accesses that have adequate blood flow and no other clinical indicators of dysfunction (persistent cannulation issues, excessive bleeding post treatment, spKt/V<1.2 or decreased blood flow due to high pressures during treatment). This is proven out by a greater than 2-fold increase in AVF access survival after 5 years (30% vs 72%), and a 3-fold decrease in access loss rate (0.186 vs 0.066). Read More..
