Carpediem Cardio Renal Pediatric Dialysis Emergency Machine

A dialysis system designed specifically for pediatric patients with acute kidney injury (AKI), fluid overload (FO) and/or electrolyte disorders.

The CRRT platform designed with the precision essential for tiny patients.​

When it comes to babies, the tiniest details matter. The Carpediem™ system was specifically designed to improve hemodynamic stability compared to adult machines for treating pediatric patients weighing 2,5 kg or more.1 It’s the first extracorporeal CRRT platform fine-tuned to help you deliver the specialised care your most fragile patients need.

A miniaturized, high-precision platform.1,2

For the most fragile patients.

The Carpediem™ system offers a dedicated extracorporeal CRRT to low-weight patients and responds to the needs of the most fragile patient.

  • CVVH, CVVHD, and SCUF modalities
  • Low priming volume and pump flow
  • High-precision scales
  • Continuous or bolus heparin pump delivery

When size and scale matter.​

Neonatal AKI and FO are under-recognized conditions which often lead to morbidity and mortality.3

neonate survival rate upon discontinuation of treatment.4,†

Tailored performance. Precise control.

  • Clinical data demonstrates a 97% survival rate at end of treatment4,†
  • Closely monitor fluid balance:
    +/- 1 g high-precision scales2
  • Enable use of small catheter sizes5
  • Reduce blood cell and vessel damage while providing necessary and adequate diffusive clearances: 2–50 mL/min low blood flow rates1,2,6

A renewed focus on what is most important.​

For the first time, there is no need to adapt adult machines and weigh the complexities that have traditionally plagued pCRRT treatments.7
