    • hoperalot, I am not up to speed on the state of the art in dialysis today (ignorant you might say), and I would like to know from you the advancement with NXTM's Streamline tubing for dialysis. If you don't want to explain, I will do the research if you could provide some links to get me started.

      Here is the quote from the press release, and I know this says it all to someone who knows the field. I just don't know enough dialysis history to understand the differentiation.

      "Medisystems' latest generation blood tubing set is the Streamline®, which features an efficient and airless design intended to improve clinical and economic performance. Streamline is designed to reduce dialysate flow, dialyzer size, treatment time, minimize heparin and waste, and optimize dose delivery, as measured in Kt/V. Streamline also includes Medisystems' patented LockSite® needleless access ports, which eliminate the need for sharp needles or costlier guarded needles to be used with the tubing set during dialysis."

    • I am a terrible typist. Make that: "Great News For This One At 8:10." Check out Atlantic Dialysis Management Services. It is a privately held, but very reputable doctor held, company.

      Again, my estimate for NAXTM is $20+.
