Fresenius Medical Care supplies extra dialysis machines for COVID-19 patients in U.S.

Fresenius Medical Care North America is making 150 additional dialysis machines available to U.S. hospitals for the emergency treatment of COVID-19 patients, under the company’s newly established National Intensive Renal Care Reserve. The reserve creates a pool of dialysis machines that can be sent to hospitals on short notice, and nearly doubles the volume of consumables available to perform treatments. The increased demand is a result of many COVID-19 patients requiring renal replacement therapy due to acute kidney injury, and not all hospitals having enough dialysis machines to treat them.
