San Diego - October 25, 2018

Baxter International Inc. (NYSE:BAX), a leading global medical products company, announced it has submitted the PrisMax system for 510(k) clearance to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Baxter intends to provide demonstrations of the PrisMax system at booth #1719 as well as present data on 15 abstracts on HDx therapy enabled by Theranova and Sharesource remote patient management innovations at the American Society of Nephrology’s (ASN): Kidney Week 2018 meeting this week.  

PrisMax is the company’s most advanced technology for continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT), which is performed when a patient experiences acute kidney injury. With input from more than 650 healthcare practitioners around the world, the acute care system was designed to make delivering therapy simpler and more efficient while improving treatment accuracy.

“We are thrilled to showcase our latest innovation for CRRT, along with our complete dialysis portfolio, at ASN: Kidney Week,” said Gavin Campbell, general manager for Baxter’s U.S. Renal business. “This is another example of how Baxter is pioneering the latest advancements in dialysis, whether it’s for patients being treated in the hospital, clinic or home.”

Baxter also intends to highlight 13 data presentations on the safety, efficacy and health-related quality of life associated with HDx therapy, and two additional presentations on a reported reduction in hospitalizations and an increase in cost efficiencies for PD therapy associated with the use of remote patient management (telehealth) technology. Additionally, attendees can learn more about these therapies by attending featured spotlight sessions during the congress:
