A dialysis system having multi-heater power coordination is described. In one embodiment, the system (10a, 10b) comprises: a first fluid heater; a second fluid heater; and a logic implementer (32, 50) configured to synchronize the duty cycles of the first and second heaters so that the first and second heaters are powered simultaneously as little as possible if a collective duty cycle of the first and second heaters is greater than one hundred percent. In another embodiment, the dialysis system (10a, 10b) comprises: a first fluid heater; a second fluid heater; a supplemental power source (14); and a logic implementer (32, 50) configured to use the supplemental power source such that when the first and second heaters are powered simultaneously, a collective current draw does not exceed a maximum allowable current draw of a branch power source (12) powering the system.

The invention relates to a hemodialysis system comprising a blood component portion including a blood pump; a blood cassette (150) operatively connected to the blood pump such that the blood pump can pump blood through the blood cassette (150) when the blood cassette (150) is in fluid communication with a blood source; a dialyzer fluidly connected to the blood cassette (150); a dialysate component portion separate from the blood component portion, the dialysate component portion including a dialysate pump; and a dialysate cassette (10e) separate from the blood cassette (150), the dialysate cassette (10e) operatively connected to the dialysate pump such that the dialysate pump can pump dialysate through the dialysate cassette (10e) when the dialysate cassette (10e) is in fluid communication with the dialysate source, the dialysate cassette being fluidly connected to the dialyzer.


Patent
Baxter International and Baxter Healthcare SA | Date: 2016-12-05

An automated peritoneal dialysis system and machine configured to perform dextrose mixing are disclosed. An example dialysis machine includes at least one pump, a first dialysate having a first dextrose level placed in fluid communication with the at least one pump, and a second dialysate having a second dextrose level placed in fluid communication with the at least one pump. The example dialysis machine also includes first and second valves placed between the first and second dialysates and the at least one pump. The example dialysis machine further includes a logic implementer programmed to operate the at least one pump and the first and second valves to mix the first and second dialysates so as to form a third dextrose level.


Patent

A peritoneal dialysis system includes: a drain container; a drain line placed in fluid communication with the drain container and configured to be placed in fluid communication with a patients peritoneal cavity; a vacuum source configured to apply a pneumatic force to cause used dialysis fluid to flow through the drain line from the patients peritoneal cavity to the drain container; a weight sensor configured to output a weight of used dialysis fluid delivered to the drain container from the patients peritoneal cavity; and a controller configured to: (i) determine an actual flow rate of used dialysis fluid removed from the patients peritoneal cavity based on the output from the weight sensor; (ii) compare the actual flow rate to a desired flow rate; and (iii) adjust the pneumatic force applied by the vacuum source to attempt to match the actual flow rate to the optimal flow rate.

This application discloses devices, articles, and methods useful for producing lyophilized cakes of solutes. The devices and articles provide for a method of freezing liquid solutions of the solute by the top and the bottom of the solution simultaneously and at approximately the same rate. The as frozen solution can then provide a lyophilized cake of the solutes with large and uniform pores.
