What does this product do?

Why should I use this product?

If formaldehyde is not thoroughly rinsed from the dialyzer, the patient will complain of burning and itching at the vascular access site. Chronic exposure to formaldehyde can cause the formation of anti-N erythrocyte antibodies, which has been associated with hemolysis of the red blood cells.

AAMI recommends the residual concentration of formaldehyde be reduced to below 3 ppm.
