Abstract

While the number of patients suffering from acute and chronic renal failure has been steadily increasing every year, the mortality rate is not improving. For the purpose of improvement on the quality of life and mortality of renal disease patients, we employ the hemofiltration principle to treat the end-stage renal disease patients. Hemofiltration equipment can be installed without additional plumbing and electrical power construction; operated only with several pre-packaged fluid bags without a huge water treatment facility. This paper describes the development of portable renal treatment equipment based on hemofiltration treatment, Carry-on Pulse Artificial Kidney (C-PAK), and reports the results of animal test using the equipment. The web-based remote monitor/control system for C-PAK is introduced also. We expect that our portable hemofiltration device for chronic renal failure patient would be an alternative for conventional hemodialysis machine and a solution to home renal treatment.
