Media panel supply without dead zones

Media panel supply without dead zones

Conventional systems use dead end lines to supply the dialysis installation. During downtimes, the water stagnates in the dead end lines of these units at room temperature. The longer the downtime, the higher the risk of contamination with micro-organisms. Extensive rinse is needed to help eliminate these unhealthy deposits. 

Safety through prevention is guaranteed with the double-hose connection system of Herco that can be heat disinfected. Even if the dialysis machine is not running, or is separated from the loop, the supply hose is still connected to the system and water passes constantly through it.

Whenever water stands in the system, bacterial growth and biofilm formation can occur. Particularly risky are stub lines used as dialysis machine supplies. The consequence for patients can be acute or chronic reactions such as fever, shivering, headaches and endotoxin-induced damage to health.
[Translate to Englisch:] Immer wenn Wasser im System steht, kann es zu Keimvermehrung und Biofilmbildung kommen. Besonders gefährdet sind Stichleitungen als Dialysemaschinen-Zulauf. Die Folge für Patienten können akute oder chronische Reaktionen wie Fieber, Schüttelfrost, Kopfschmerzen und endotoxininduzierte Gesundheitsschäden sein.
