    Quick Connectors for Dialysis

    According to the National Kidney Foundation, 10% of the global population is affected by chronic kidney diseases, with more than a million dying each year. Dialysis is a blood purification procedure, done by dialysis machines, where toxins and excess fluids are removed from the body. Dialysis machines are used in the treatment of chronic kidney diseases, acute renal injuries, kidney transplant procedures and other kidney ailments. Larger clinics and dialysis centers use bulk distribution systems to deliver the fluids and chemicals from the mixing and water treatment systems in the back of the clinic to the dialysis machines.  

    Dialysis Industry Growth Continues

    Rising incidents of kidney ailments and lack of kidney donors has resulted in dialysis industry growth worldwide. Additionally, kidney problems caused by the prevalence of diabetes and the growing number of patients suffering from end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are driving the need for dialysis treatment. Funding for better dialysis products and increasing demand for easier-to-use in-home treatment options are major influencers in the industry.
