Abstract/OtherAbstract:
With better understanding of the pathophysiology of uremia, the development of more efficient dialysis techniques and more portable machinery, a larger number of patients on maintenance dialysis are not stable enough to undertake travel to places where a regular hemodialysis center may not be availabel or to travel on a ship for a relatively long period of time. Ten stable patients were taken on a 7 day cruise utilizing the relatively lightweight and portable REDY Dialysis System. The medical team consisted of 2 nurses, 2 technicians and 1 physician. The ship's infirmary was converted to a 4 bed hemodialysis unit. Complications were minimal and easily handled by the medical staff.
