The Redsense safety device is designed to detect venous needle dislodgement during hemodialysis, for Home/Self and Clinical use.
Redsense consists of two parts: a sensor patch and an alarm unit. An infrared signal is transmitted from the alarm unit to the sensor patch using fibre optic cable. In the event of bleeding, inner layers of the patch smear blood over the optical sensor, which triggers the alarm.
The Redsense safety device is the results of close co-operation between medical staff and engineers. Dialysis equipment today is required to have a system which protects the patient from blood loss due to dislodgement of the venous needle. The commonly accepted solution is to monitor by the venous pressure alarm but a better solution has long been requested. Even with the routine supervision of medical staff still the venous needle can become dislodged: the dialysis machine will then continue to draw blood from the patient’s artery however not returning blood in the loop circuit as the venous needle has become dislodged and the patient’s blood ends up elsewhere. If undetected, this blood loss can have very serious consequences in only a few minutes. Redsense safety device provides a solution to this problem and detects venous needle dislodgement instantaneously; it only takes a few milliliters of blood on the sensor patch to sound the alarm.
Optimizing safety conditions for home hemodialysis users is a core ambition for Redsense Medical.
Redsense Medical has offices in Sweden and in the U.S. (Chicago, IL). For more information: www.redsensemedical.com.Redsense Medical Ltd

Theraworx is a skin-healthy solution to cleanse, moisturize, and protect your skin. The science behind the magic is multi-factorial and was designed over a period of years.

Each ingredient is critical along with the methods used to provide a stable, reliable product. Theraworx is distributed only after undergoing a unique treatment process. This allows us to provide a product free of chemicals and alcohols so often used to prevent bacterial growth.
