New: Access Flow Monitor (AFM)
Enhancing quality in access management
Potential benefits of the new Access Flow Monitor:
- Easy assessment of the quality of vascular access with conductivity-based technology
- Easy detection of vascular access flow changes
- Support of compliance with recommendations from guidelines: The European Society for Vascular Surgery (ESVS) recommends regular monitoring by flow measurement of vascular access2
- Easy and user guided operation
- Direct cost savings with fully integrated and non-invasive technology
