Symposia are always a good opportunity to share knowledge and latest developments and meet other representatives in the dialysis field. The 1st Mediterranean Dialysis Symposium in Antalya brought together 200 nephrologists and dialysis nurses from all Mediterranean countries. Of course Diaverum joined!
Harun Kanmaz, headnurse of Diaverum Turkey Antalya Nefroloji clinic also took an active role during the symposium. He presented the Diaverum’s buttonhole technique: “The buttonhole technique is used by patients needling themselves. Patients insert their dialysis needles into the same spot each time they do dialysis. ´Piercing´ themselves this way creates a tunnel that can be used with blunt dialysis needles instead of sharp ones which is more comfortable and safer for the patients.”
We are looking forward to the next Mediterranean Dialysis Symposium!
