New Jersey GranuFlo Lawyer

Having recently been recalled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), GranuFlo has been linked to several life-threatening health conditions. Subsequently, improper Granuflo prescribing practices have witnessed an increased association between this dry acid concentrate and the development of metabolic alkalosis. This adverse cardiac event is a significant risk factor associated with low blood pressure, hypokalemia, hypoxemia, hypercapnia and cardiac arrhythmia, which, if not appropriately treated, may culminate in cardiopulmonary arrest. Therefore, if you have been harmed by this dialysis solution, a New Jersey GranuFlo lawyer may assist you in your pursuit of justice and compensation.

GranuFlo was developed by Fresenius Medical Care and released in January of 2008. After receiving approval from the FDA, this dry acid concentrate was indicated to assist in the treatment of both chronic and acute renal failure during dialysis. Its unique concentration of nutrients helped to remove harmful contaminants from blood and replace them with those that are vital to survival.

In replacing vital nutrients, GranuFlo reintroduces patients to a chemical compound known throughout the medical community as sodium bicarbonate. By doing so, sodium bicarbonate balances pH levels that are otherwise in disarray. Of particular concern, however, are clinicians that are unaware of GranuFlo’s inclusion of such a compound. Those that are unfamiliar with GranuFlo may prescribe an independent dose of sodium bicarbonate to balance pH levels. Sodium bicarbonate levels may then exceed that of which are safe and subject patients to severe, life-threatening complications.

In particular, excessive exposure to sodium bicarbonate may lead to metabolic alkalosis, which is a significant risk factor associated with several adverse cardiac events. New Jersey GranuFlo lawsuits are currently evaluating the link between this product and th development of the following complications:

  • Low blood pressure
  • Cardiopulmonary arrest
  • Cardiac arrhythmia
  • Hypokalemia
  • Hypoxemia
  • Hypercapnia
  • Sudden heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Hemodialysis cardiopulmonary arrest
  • Cardiopulmonary death

Due to the rate and severity in which complications may arise, GranuFlo was removed from the market. Subsequently, those residing in the state of New Jersey that have been harmed by this dry acid concentrate may be eligible to receive substantial compensation. A New Jersey GranuFlo lawyer will not only provide appropriate representation, but a means of seeking injustice for the wrongdoings of Fresenius.
