CHF Solutions Initiates Strategic Collaboration with Daxor Corporation to Assist in the Management of Patients with Fluid Overload
The collaboration will initiate with a small clinical evaluation of the benefits of blood volume measurement and its potential to inform ultrafiltration therapy management with the company’s Aquadex FlexFlow system. Published data has shown that 24 percent of fluid overloaded patients are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days and approximately 50 percent within six months. The companies intend to determine synergies of using the BVA-100 to assist in informing clinicians on fluid volume status including patient selection, when to start ultrafiltration therapy, and how to manage therapy to achieve positive clinical results for patients.
“We believe that ultrafiltration with the Aquadex FlexFlow system is an essential component to effectively manage fluid overloaded patients who have failed diuretics,” said
“Daxor seeks to supply healthcare providers with the means to improve heart failure treatment outcomes. We feel that the combination of our precision diagnostic combined with Aquadex FlexFlow therapy for fluid overload may result in significantly improved patient care,” commented
