At Baxter, we truly understand the challenges you face. As a leader in the manufacturing of medical devices for over 80 years, we’ve been committed to advancing dialysis and hemodialysis treatment in ground-breaking and meaningful ways. We lead the way with innovative products, comprehensive support, and in-depth training across the lifecycle of our products. At Baxter, we don’t believe in delivering the same standardized therapy to all patients, but instead provide choices to select the therapy and treatment modality that is right for both patients and clinic.


EXPANDED HEMODIALYSIS [HDx] enabled by Theranova

Change One Thing. Change Everything.

Theranova, the next evolution in hemodialysis, brings us a step closer to the natural kidney by superior removal of conventional/large middle molecular (500-45,000 Da) uremic toxins, compared to traditional hemodialysis.1-4

With HDx therapy, efficient removal of these toxins may improve patient reported kidney disease quality of life outcomes including: symptom burden, Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) criteria and uremic pruritus.1,4,5
