Transducer Protectors for Dialysis Equipment

There are many parts and materials in a medical setting of which most people are not aware. Though the purpose of some of these parts is more self-explanatory than others, some are a little less obvious. This doesn’t make these pieces less important—some of these materials are meant to protect the safety and health of the patient during hemodialysis treatment. This is exactly the purpose of the transducer protector!

Molded Products transducer protectors utilize a hydrophobic membrane, typically 0.2 Micron, which provides the right combination of barrier properties and airflow so they can deliver the best protection possible to everyone involved in the hemodialysis treatment.

High airflow through the MPC-85 Transducer Protector membrane also allows hemodialysis equipment to rapidly respond to changes in blood pressure so patients can receive the highest quality care. This prevents accidental machine contamination while allowing the pressure transducer to read the pressure inside the dialysis blood circuit.

Special Features of the MPC-85 Transducer Protector include:

  • Helps prevent blood and dialyzing fluid from damaging sensitive transducers
  • Hydrophobic membrane with 0.2-micron pore size
  • Prevents contamination of the internal pressure monitoring lines
  • Sterile, Non-Pyrogenic!
  • Helps protect against both bacterial and viral cross-contamination
  • What is a Transducer Protector?

    A transducer protector for dialysis equipment is a device that is used to protect the electronic transducers that are used in dialysis machines.  They are responsible for measuring different parameters of the dialysis process, such as blood flow and pressure which can be damaged by electrical disturbances such as power surges and electromagnetic interference.

    Essentially, they keep the bloodline side of the circuit separated from the machine side and prevent contamination of the machine by the blood flowing through the circuit.  They are a good in-line protective barrier for pressure monitoring during hemodialysis to make sure the dialysis process is accurate and reliable.

  • Features & Benefits

    Transducer protectors for dialysis equipment are easy to install and maintain.  They minimize any downtime to ensure that the dialysis process can continue without interruption.

    Benefits of transducer protection in Hemodialysis Equipment:

    • Patient Safety: They improve patient safety by eliminating the transfer of bloodborne illnesses/diseases like HIV or hepatitis.  With the addition of a transducer protector, the chance of wetting or strikethroughs is virtually eliminated, keeping patients safe and improving chances during life-threatening situations.  Additionally, they reduce the risk of cross-contamination between machines and humans, further increasing the safety of patients.
    • Machine Processes:  They can greatly improve the general operations and regulation of machinery.  In addition to improved strikethrough detection, transducer protectors can also decrease the amount of time people need to spend cleaning and sanitizing the equipment used.
  • Options

    Options include:

    • External transducer protectors are placed outside of the dialysis machine and are connected through the blood tubing set
    • They are available in bulk packaging or tamper-evident individual packaging
