Representation for Dialysis Patients
GranuFlo is a dry acid concentrate used in dialysis treatments that has been recalled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The product has been linked to serious adverse health consequences, including death. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or illness after receiving dialysis using GranuFlo products, our Maryland personal injury attorneys are prepared to help you recover the damages you incurred.
Fresenius Medical Care, the manufacturer of GranuFlo, has been hounded by the healthcare, regulatory and legal communities for the dangers associated with their products. In light of numerous reports of adverse health effects, several studies were conducted that found GranuFlo to increase risks of cardiovascular death, cardiopulmonary arrest, heart attack, and other serious injuries and illnesses. The Class I recall issued by the FDA, which is the most serious and urgent type of recall, stated that GranuFlo as well as Fresenius’s other dialysis product, Naturalyte, posed significant risk factors.
According to the FDA, GranuFlo and Naturalyte products may contribute to metabolic alkalosis, which is a serious risk factor associated with low blood pressure, hypokalemia, hypoxemia, hypercapnia and cardiac arrhythmia. If not appropriately treated, these conditions can culminate in cardiopulmonary arrest and other serious adverse events, including death.
