REPLACEMENT OF EQUIPMENT FOR PDK

JULY 2018

Persatuan Dialysis Kurnia Petaling Jaya or PDK has been operating since 2008 and is supported by a dedicated team of staff consisting of nurses, nursing aides, administrative and general personnel. The centre is equipped with 14 units of haemodialysis machines and supporting facilities like the reverse osmosis water treatment plant and automatic dialyzer reprocessors. These equipment are currently catering to 72 patients.

In 2018, PDK had to replace two type of equipment that complement the hemodialysis machines – the reverse osmosis system and automatic dialyzer reprocessors.

Automatic dialyzer reprocessor is used to clean artificial kidneys or dialyzers. With the dialyzer reprocessor, a dialyzer will not be discarded after the end of the treatment but cleaned, disinfected and stored until the next treatment. PDK has three dialyzer reprocessors and all of them are due for replacements. The equipment is required to be replaced every five to seven years. SPB contributed to the purchase of two automatic dialyzer reprocessors for PDK.
