Are any other hemodialysis units using the Redsense alarm to detect venous needle detachment? We have been using for about a year and staff report that the alarms go off constantly even though the needle is not detached.
Our clinic did a trial study on these back in 2007, prior to them being approved by the FDA and we had the opposite results.
They never seemed to alarm. We even squirted blood into the sensor and it still did not alarm.
We sent them back to Sweden!
