New dialysis machines

I just found out that NB just approved use of a new in home dialysis machine, dubbed the 5008k. The hospital doesn't have any yet and I'm guessing it will probably be a year or more until they do but I've asked if I could get one when they do. They said I'd be the first to get one. I didn't get that is writing though.

Apparently primary selling point to the new machine is that instead of liquid acids and bicarbonate it uses all powders which would save a huge amount of space.

Unfortunitly it doesn't seem any of the advanced features I had wanted from my previous post will be included.

Here's hoping I have a slightly used type O+ kidney by the time they are rolling these out anyway.
