The Deal With Cardiovascular Problems and GranuFlo

Many medical conditions involve disruption to kidney processes, and advanced procedures have been developed which protect the health and well being of patients by replacing the function of the kidneys through artificial processes. This technique is referred to as dialysis, and is an essential part of kidney treatment which has saved countless lives over the course of its implementation since it was created. Bypassing the kidneys, dialysis seeks to artificially screen out waste material and other toxins from the bloodstream through a variety of chemical methods, including the use of specialized drugs such as Granuflo, a dry acid concentrate developed by Fresenius Medical Care for dialysis purposes.

Fresenius failed its customers however when it neglected to fully explore the potential side effects of the drug, which have now been shown to include an extremely increased level of bicarbonates in the bloodstream of patients. This has the deadly effect of greatly increasing patients’ risk of various cardiovascular diseases and problems such as heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, arrhythmia, and a host of other challenges. Rather than assisting the patient overcome the challenges they are already facing which required dialysis in the first place, GranuFlo has instead subjected hundreds of patients to deadly diseases and heart conditions. These injuries can result in a extreme financial hardship for the victims and their families as they attempt to deal with significant medical expenses and simultaneous lost wages from time spent way from work.

Recovering compensation for your losses is still possible in these situations however. Due to the fact that an Food and Drug Administration Class 1 recall of GranuFlo has clearly identified the drug ans a dangerous product, proving that Fresenius was negligent in producing the drug and distributing it to patients is all but given. A GranuFlo lawsuit will be most focused on clearly demonstrating that this negligence directly contributed to the injury of the patient, allowing liability to be established.
