Creating Custom UF Profiles This manual is organized to systematically guide a patient-care specialist through the set up, operation, and clean up of the K in daily use. The book begins with an overview that introduces the operator to the major components and describes how they are organized on the machine.

Fresenius Medical Care 2008K Operator’s Manual

Index An index to aid the operator in referencing information is included Requirements Operators of the K Hemodialysis machine must be trained to administer hemodialysis at the direction of a physician. In addition, the operator should be: A button refers to pressure-sensitive area located in the treatment screens that is used to set treatment parameters.

Control The control panel is located at the top third of the K and contains the Panel touch screen and panel keys used in controlling the treatment. Infections or pyrogen reactions may also result from contamination of the extracorporeal circuit or inadequate procedures used to reuse dialyzers. Allergic reactions to chemical disinfectants may occur if insufficient procedures are used to remove or maintain the residual disinfectant at acceptable levels.

These instructions are for the Fresenius K Hemodialysis machine. The machine must only be operated in accordance with these instructions. All operators of this machine must be thoroughly trained and have read this entire manual and any applicable appendices before using the machine.


General Warnings This section contains general nanual statements regarding the use and maintenance of the Fresenius Fressenius hemodialysis machine. It is not a complete summary, and additional warning statements specific to pertinent topics can be found within this manual. Connect water inlet according to the specifications for the machine. The Fresenius K can be set up for various concentrate types. Use Table 27 in Manhal B to ensure that you have compatible concentrates and configurations.

If the external transducer protector and the internal transducer should be become contaminated with blood, the transducer protectors must be replaced, and the transducer and associated parts must be disinfected or replaced.

Cold tubing may not prime as readily as warm tubing. Fresenius Medical Care manufactures bloodlines for use with the model K hemodialysis machine. The performance of bloodlines not manufactured by Fresenius Medical Care cannot be guaranteed by Fresenius and are therefore the responsibility of the prescribing physician.

Assembly, installation, adjustment, or repair is to be performed only by persons authorized by the facility medical director or by Fresenius USA. For further information regarding the operation, repair, parts, or maintenance of the Fresenius K hemodialysis machine, please contact: You should familiarize yourself with the location and purpose of these features.

Chapter 1—Overview The Control Panel The control panel see Figure 3 is located at the top, front of the K machine and contains key pads that allow the user to control the operation of the K machine.


Located in the middle of the control panel is the touch screen that can display a variety of treatment screens through which the operator can use to set treatment parameters and monitor the treatment.

Press … To … Turn the machine on. Hold for one second to turn the power off and If blood is sensed, the machine will power down with an audible alarm.

The screen access buttons below the display area are used to access the various treatment screens. The data entry keys, at the bottom of the treatment display section, are the means used to enter treatment parameter values or make selections inside the treatment screen. The Override light will not illuminate. During an override, the blood leak detector is inactive. The fluid level has dropped below the sensors in the venous drip chamber.

A minor blood leak has been detected by the blood leak detector. An amount of blood greater than 0.

Dialysate flow is bypassing the dialyzer because dialysate is outside the allowable temperature or conductivity limits, or shunt interlock door is open. Chapter 1—Overview Modules The modules accompanying the K are located just below the control panel.

Each component contributes to the task of transmitting the blood from the patient, through the dialyzer and back to the patient. Any machine can be set up for a pre-pump or post-pump arterial chamber, or single-needle dialysis requiring two blood pumps by adding modules, or rearranging their order. Tubing Retainer A spring-loaded device that secures the pump segment in place.

The Adult size comes standard with the K and can accommodate patients with upper arm circumferences of centimeters. An optional thigh cuff is also available.

Line from venous drip chamber is connected to a transducer protector port P and attached here to provide venous blood pressure readings. Venous Drip Holds the drip chamber and aligns it with the ultrasonic air sensor. Chamber Holder Latching door secures chamber in place. The dialysate delivery machine can be used with a variety of blood-tubing configurations.

The modules Blood pump, level detector, and heparin pump can be arranged on the K in a variety of ways to allow for pre-or post-arterial pump pressure monitoring.

The machine can accommodate most standard blood tubing that have pump segments ranging from 2 to 10 mm internal diameter. Before beginning the daily preparation procedures, visually inspect the machine to verify that: The red lines on the machine are guides for arterial bloodline from patient to dialyzer.

The blue lines on the machine are guides for the venous bloodline from the dialyzer to majual patient. Be sure to use aseptic technique for all bloodline connections. Chapter 2—Daily Preparation for Treatment Note: Be sure the end of the segment clears the bottom of the yoke. Make sure the collar of the pump segment is positioned below the bottom of the yoke.

This will minimize the possibility of the segment kinking during pump operation. Secure the patient end of the venous line over the priming bucket. To prevent contamination, do not allow it to touch the fluid in the bucket.

Mount the dialyzer in its holder, arterial-end up. The Standard Prime method allows the operator to prime the blood circuit by controlling the flow of the saline manually.

Fresenius Medical Care K Manuals

The Prime Amount method is a machine option that is set in the Service mode, and limits the amount of saline used in the priming procedure to a manuwl volume. The Level Adjust key can only be used to raise the level in the arterial chamber.

Do not press the Level Adjust key so long that the pressure transducer protector becomes wet. Wet transducer protectors must be replaced to avoid erroneous pressure readings. If 2X dialysate flow is selected, fresenuis sure that the dialysate flow rate is at least the minimum required rate. The K can be configured so that this testing is mandatory after power up providing that the force test option is selected.


In this case, the test will start on its own. After a long power down, however, only the Both Tests button is enabled. Pressing the RESET key once mutes ffresenius alarm, pressing mwnual a second time resets the right side of the screen. The K hemodialysis machine can be set up to perform online PHTs during treatment. These tests routinely happen every 12 minutes, and check the integrity of the hydraulic system.

In the event of a failure, an alarm sounds and a warning message is displayed in the status box. Fresenijs K can be configured in Service mode so that audible alarms occur only when the optical detector senses blood. If this option is not selected, an audible alarm will sound when the shunt interlock door is open. Chapter 3—Setting Treatment Parameters New Treatment Key When the K is first turned on in preparation for daily operation after a long power downall treatment parameters revert to their default settings.

The New TX key allows the operator to reset patient treatment parameters to their default settings without interrupting the power to the machine.

The following example illustrates this procedure. The volume of each concentrate will count down as it is used. To shift the window downward, press the Down arrow key.

Always verify the conductivity and approximate pH of the dialysate solution through independent means before initiating dialysis. Verify that the pH is normal and that the conductivity is reasonably close to the theoretical value.

If it is not, do not initiate dialysis. The K hemodialysis machine is equipped with both visual cues and audible alarms to alert the operator to potential problems. The operator can start or stop the pure UF option at any time.

Sequential Dialysis To set the K for sequential dialysis: To set the K for sequential dialysis: Yellow light will flash when flow is off. If the Na or Bicarbonate level is entered with a numeric key, they are only recalculated after the Freseniuss key is pressed or a parameter button is pressed for a different parameter.

The end time is represented in the profile graph by a tick mark on the horizontal axis. It can be set to deliver heparin in a bolus dose and at a consistent rate during the treatment. What to set in this screen… If no time is set in the Infusion Time button manial the heparin pump is turned on, it will run at the selected rate until the syringe is empty or the heparin pump is turned off. The heparin pump should be monitored to verify the intended infusion during treatment.

The syringe menu opens. Connect the syringe to the heparin line and unclamp the heparin line. As the carriage moves upward, 2008o the heparin as it travels from the syringe through the heparin line.
