Aquapheresis: Life-Saving Technology from Wise Regional Health System
The Wise County Messenger recently featured a front-page story about aquapheresis, a life-saving technology available at Wise Regional Health System. Aquapheresis safely treats fluid overload, a condition that results from heart failure, liver cirrhosis, hypertension and certain kidney diseases. Aquapheresis therapy gradually removes an average of eight ounces of water per hour, so patient’s heart rate and blood pressure are not significantly affected. The gradual reduction in excess body fluids lowers the time it takes to treat heart failure patients.
