    You should be able to have the CRRT option installed on your Fresenius H (and K) machines which will add the second pump you need. That way it's all on the machine and ready to go. If you want more info about it (prices, etc), contact Fresenius at 800-227-2572 or 800-662-1237. I'm guessing it will be in the neighborhood of $1500-$1800 per machine, though (plus installing it, which shouldn't be much). Not very cheap. Lol. Good luck! Hope that helps.

    We use a pump made by ASAHI that sits on top of the fresenius H.

    Sorry, I lied. I called to check the price for you. Looks like it's about $3800 for the kit.
