High-Volume HDF improves patient survival
The Catalonian Online Haemodiafiltration Survival Study (ESHOL) published in February 2013 confirms Fresenius Medical Care’s conviction that every patient should be given the chance to benefit from haemodiafiltration (HDF) therapy with high volumes of substitution fluid (HighVolumeHDF).
