Richard Parsons, a volunteer for WORTH and a full-time Davita employee, traveled to Belize this last February to train local people in the country to administer dialysis to patients and run the equipment needed. By doing this the units are able to develop and eventually become self-sustaining. They will never turn a patient away because…Details

The Hydra, a convenient, hand-held, syringe-style meter for quick and accurate measurement of conductivity, pH and temperature of the water from your treatment system was designed primarily as a conductivity meter with the additional function of being able to display the conductivity reading as TDS (ppm or ppt). A customer recently asked how to…Details
FDA Quality Assurance Guidelines recommend that the conductivity, pH and temperature of the final dialysate are checked with an independent reference meter before every treatment. This is to ensure that the dialysate to be administered is safe for the patient. Testing the dialysate prior to patient exposure serves as the final line of defense…Details
To ensure accurate results and proper function of all parameters, the meter should be checked for accuracy daily. A full calibration of your Mesa Medical meter should be performed periodically (monthly is suggested but it is ultimately up to the user). Use the 4.0 and 10.0 pH buffers when performing a calibration on the pH…Details
