CHF Solutions (Nasdaq: CHFS), a medical device company dedicated to changing the lives of patients suffering from fluid overload, today announced that it has sold Aquadex SmartFlow™ consoles and disposables to a critical care hospital for use in the treatment of COVID-19 patients in Central Florida.

Managing fluid balance in critically ill COVID-19 patients is important to avoid potentially life-threatening complications, such as volume overload, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), and other conditions related to progressive congestion. Because of this need, several hospitals across the country have included a simplified ultrafiltration system, such as Aquadex therapy, into their treatment protocol for fluid management for COVID-19 patients, especially when dialysis equipment and staff are limited. As recently cited, isolated ultrafiltration is an optimal strategy that primarily focuses on fluid extraction and optimization of volume status.1 The Aquadex SmartFlow system, a portable ultrafiltration device with small extracorporeal volume (i.e. 35 ml), provides a predictable method for fluid extraction, making it more likely to achieve precise fluid balance in these patients. 

“Hospitals continue to see the need for ultrafiltration to treat patients affected with COVID-19 throughout the country,” said John Erb, CEO of CHF Solutions. “The Aquadex SmartFlow system provides a simple, predictable and smart solution and we are pleased that the therapy is being used to help patients in Central Florida.”
