NICaS is designed to assist physicians to determine the patient’s body composition and the cause of intradialytic hypertension. Furthermore, the hypotension diagnosis is based on patients’ objective hemodynamic parameters. These parameters provide physicians with a deeper understanding of the total dynamics that affect each patient’s individual hemodynamic status. With NICaS, physicians can more effectively determine the proper dry weight and the dialysis session plan.
Dialysis In Numbers:
80% of end-stage kidney disease patients are expected to receive home dialysis or kidney transplants, By 2025.
88% of patients receive treatment at dialysis centers.
$84B – Medicare’s annual spending on CKD patients.
