Advances in Dialysis Technology

The May 2017 Northwest Renal Network Patient Bulletin or Monthly Patient Flyer, titled “Dialysis News,” is about current and future advances in dialysis technology, including the wireless Outset Medical Tabio HD System that is designed for ease of use and remote monitoring, the web-based Baxter AMIA PD Cycler also designed for remote monitoring, and the implantable bioartificial kidneys being developed at the University of California, San Francisco and at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

The issue also includes a note about the free online My Life, My Dialysis Choice decision aid from MEI.
