Hæmostatic Dressings For Hæmodialysis

Project 2018-11-30 21:49:32 +1300

I need to buy a 12-month supply of Axiostat chitosan hæmostatic dressings so I can have artificial kidney treatment without the risk of dangerous hæmorrhages. 

I have been receiving artificial kidney (dialysis) treatment from Capital & Coast DHB since October 2014. In April 2016, I had a valve replaced in my heart, which requires a high level of systemic anti-coagulation (warfarin) to prevent clots. I have had serious and sometimes life-threatening hæmorrhages from the vein in my arm used for dialysis, which is joined to an artery and has a flow rate of 1000-1200 ml per minute.

Because I take warfarin to stop my mechanical mitral valve from clotting, I can control bleeding, but I can't stop it. This makes the use of large, high-flow needles very dangerous, and I have often hæmorrhaged between treatments. Axiostat chitosan hæmostats can stop this happening, bringing bleeding under control with a few minutes of firm pressure.

The fundraiser breaks down as follows:

  • NZ$500 for 4 x 80 dressings (2 dressings per treatment, 3 treatments per week), including air freight (based on US$350 @ NZ$1.00 = US$0.70)
  • NZ$75 for GST collected by NZ Customs
  • NZ$52.67 for Customs import fee
  • NZ$40.80 for PledgeMe fees (6.5% of the total)
