Cellulose triacetate dialyzers: The choice for people hypersensitive to synthetic membranes.

Allergic reactions associated with the hemodialysis technique have been traditionally categorized into two types. This has to do with the severity of the clinical response of the patient.

The type A response tends to occur immediately in the first minutes of HD session, dirtectly after the blood has come into contacty with components of the extracorporeal circuit. In this response, immediate action is needed and consists of stopping the blood pump, disconnecting the entire extracorporeal circuit, without returning the blood to the patient. Furthermore, administration of short-acting antihistamines, corticosteroids, corticoids, hydrocortisone and high-flow oxygen are required. Assisted respiration is started when necessary.

In a type B response the reaction mechanism is unknown and tends to start later, 15-40 min into HD treatment or even after treatment, Clinical signs are less specific, such as chest and back pain but it does now require teh HD session to be interrupted.

Companents that can induce allergic response in hemodialysis:

  • Sterilization method e.g. Ethylene oxide (ETO)
  • Formaldehyde
  • Heparin
  • Iron
  • Erythropoietic agent like Erythropoietin (EPO)
  • Type of membrane: Polysulphone (PS), Polyester polymer allow (PEPA), PMMA, PN, PES and unmodified (old) cellulose membranes NOT Cellulose Triacetate (CTA)

Cellulose tracetate membranes causes less allergic reactions than synthetic membranes. This makes it the memrane of choice for people that are hypersensitive to synthetic membranes.

 Sureflux L is a low flux dialyzer with superior performance in removal of small and middle molecules, like phosphate.
