We're changing the way kidney patients live with more frequent home hemodialysis.
A simple faucet or under sink connection and a standard electrical outlet are all that are required.
Home hemodialysis is a different way of doing hemodialysis. Instead of having to go to a dialysis center 3 times a week for treatments that are about 4 hours long, a person doing home hemodialysis does his or her treatments at home. There are different types and schedules of home hemodialysis, but the most common is more frequent home hemodialysis, in which the patient does shorter treatments (about 2.5 to 3 hours) more often (5 or 6 days per week) at home.
More frequent dialysis keeps the amount of toxin and water build-up to a minimum, which makes the treatment shorter and may reduce or eliminate many side effects patients experience. The patient and a care partner (usually a family member or friend) are trained by the dialysis center nurses to do their treatments safely at home. Doing dialysis more often is closer to how healthy kidneys work.
The NxStage System One is a prescription device. All forms of hemodialysis, including treatments performed in-center and at home, involve some risks. In addition, there are certain risks unique to treatment in the home environment. Patients differ and not everyone will experience the reported benefits of more frequent home hemodialysis.
Talk to your doctor to see if more frequent home hemodialysis with NxStage is right for you.
In honor of Independence Day, we thought you might like to hear a few NxStage patients describing what “Independence” means to them.
