Hemodialysis

Business outline

Kawasumi has been contributing in Japan and overseas to hemodialysis treatment in many ways, such as its development of the Japan's first coil dialyzer (artificial kidney) in 1972.

Today, over two million patients worldwide require dialysis treatment, and this number has been rising due to the increase in lifestyle diseases, economic growth and improvements of the social security system in developing countries. This trend is expected to continue in the future.

Kawasumi globally promotes the development, production, and sales of disposable products for hemodialysis treatment, such as dialyzers, blood tubing lines, A.V. Fistula needles, and isotonic sodium chloride solutions.
