  • Patent number: 7001353
    Abstract: A method is described for determining recirculation of blood in a vascular access of a patient undergoing dialysis treatment using a dialysis machine with an arterial line for withdrawing blood from the patient's body, a dialysis filter, and a venous line for returning blood to the patient's body. The method induces a disturbance in the blood flowing in the venous line. The disturbance is of a magnitude capable of bringing the system into a transient state and determining blood recirculation in the vascular access during the transient state as a function of the magnitude of the disturbance induced in the arterial line. In particular, the disturbance relates to the variation of the hemoglobin concentration in the blood flowing in the venous line. The variation is caused by controlling a change in the ultrafiltration flow in the dialysis filter.

  • Patent number: 6793827
    Abstract: A method for extracorporeal treatment of blood includes preparing a treatment liquid from a liquid and two concentrated solutions by circulating the liquid in a preparation conduit at a flowrate Q0; injecting a first concentrated solution containing at least a first ionic substance A and a second ionic substance B into the preparation conduit at a flowrate Q1; and injecting a second concentrated solution containing at least the first ionic substance A into the preparation conduit at a flowrate Q2. The ionic substance B may have a first concentration in the first concentrated solution and a second concentration, different from the first concentration, in the second concentrated solution. The method may also include regulating the injection flowrates Q1 and Q2 in such a way that at any given time the diluted solution resulting from the mixing of the liquid and the concentrated solutions has a desired concentration of the first ionic substance A and a desired concentration of the second ionic substance B.

  • Publication number: 20040073153
    Abstract: A method is described for determining recirculation of blood in a vascular access (11) of a patient undergoing dialysis treatment by means of a dialysis machine (10) comprising an arterial line (24) for withdrawing blood from the patient's body, a dialysis filter (16), and a venous line (26) for returning the blood to the patient's body. The present method consists in inducing, in the blood flowing in the venous line (26), a disturbance of a magnitude such as to bring the system into a transient state and determining blood recirculation in the vascular access (11) during the transient state as a function of the magnitude of the disturbance induced in the arterial line (24). In particular, the aforesaid disturbance consists of the variation of the haemoglobin concentration in the blood flowing in the venous line (26) and the variation is caused by controlling a change in the ultrafiltration flow in dialysis filter (16).

  • Patent number: 6691040
    Abstract: A method for continuously determining a parameter (D, Cbin, K, Kt/V) indicative of an extracorporeal blood treatment includes flowing patient's blood and a treatment liquid flow on opposite sides of a semipermeable membrane. The treatment liquid has a characteristic (Cd) associated with the effectiveness of the treatment flow through the exchanger. A succession of variations are caused in the characteristic (Cd) upstream of the exchanger, and a plurality of values (Cdin1 . . . Cdinj . . . Cdinp) of the characteristic (Cd) upstream of the exchanger are continuously stored in memory. Similarly, plurality of values (Cdout1 . . . Cdoutj . . . Cdoutp) adopted by the characteristic (Cd) downstream of the exchanger are continuously stored in memory. From the stored values, the effectiveness of the treatment is calculated using a mathematical model.

  • Patent number: 5618441
    Abstract: A dialysis machine uses a single microcontroller to perform both safety system functions and control system functions. A single segmented memory records the safety system code and data separately and in isolation from the control system code and data. Access to the safety system software is limited to the operating system and safety system contexts. A protected mode of operation of an embedded processor allows recovery of a state vector upon failures of the operating system, the safety system and the control system. The operating system allows recovery of a state vector upon failure of the safety system and the operating system. A watchdog timer circuit places the dialysis machine in a safe patient state if a total failure of the microcontroller occurs.
