What is an Electronic air Pressure Regulator in a Dialysis Machine?

An electronic air pressure regulator offers multiple advantages over mechanical regulator designs. The electronic pressure regulators come in many forms and deliver better accuracy, variable control rates via a control signal, and a feedback signal to make closed-loop pressure control. These pressure regulators play an important role in dialysis machines. Dialysate is a liquid that is created up of water, electrolytes, and salts. During dialysis, dialysate helps to clean your blood inside the dialyzer by removing waste products and balancing electrolytes with an electronic air pressure regulator. Your nephrologist will specify the dialysate that is right for your body’s needs.

What does a dialyzer (artificial kidney)?

A dialyzer is a part of the hemodialysis machine of an electronically controlled pressure regulator where your blood gets purified. The essence of the dialyzer is made up of thousands of small mesh tubes. Your blood flows inside each tube, and the dialysate stays on the outside of the low-flow electronic pressure regulator tubes. Small pores in the tubes let waste and excess fluids pass from your blood into the dialysate. Your cleaned blood then leaves the dialyzer and is produced in your body.

How is my dialysis treatment monitored?

In Modern Technology, during your dialysis session, a detailed notification will show on the machine’s monitoring screen. Every procedure will be monitored by an electronic air pressure regulator, including the pump speed, blood pressure, and dialysate temperature. Every check is designed to make sure your dialysis session is safe and effective by air pressure control.

 An alert will sound if anything needs attention to the digital pressure regulator. An alert may simply mean the machine needs to be studied or something needs to be modified. If you are doing home hemodialysis with the help of a control pressure regulator, you will be trained on what to do for any alert you might hear as part of your overall dialysis and safety training. Apart from that, you can also call your nurse 24/7 if you have questions or need service. If you receive in-center hemodialysis, your care team will monitor the machine throughout the function of the electronic pressure regulators and make any adjustments necessary.

 Your treatment will also be monitored through your personal Fresenius Kidney Care Portal. If you’re on home dialysis, you will log your daily treatment data for instant delivery to your care team. You will also be able to view lab results, track your supply order in an electric pressure regulator, and communicate with your care team about any issues or concerns.

What happens if there’s a power failure during dialysis?

If the power goes off while your cycler is working, it will automatically close all the lines. The machine will store the information about your session using a backup battery. If the power comes back on soon that stored information lets the electronic air pressure regulator continue the session. If not, it’s best to call your home dialysis nurse about what to do next support is available 24/7 if you ever have questions or concerns.
