What Is Home Hemodialysis?
Home hemodialysis is a treatment option for patients suffering from end stage renal disease who need dialysis in order to stay alive and healthy. For patients who opt to do hemodialysis at home on their own time, home hemodialysis is an option. Patients perform their own dialysis from the comfort of home or while traveling, fitting it into their schedules whenever it works best for them.
What Does Home Hemodialysis Involve?
There are different options for home hemodialysis:
Daily Home Hemodialysis
This option of hemodialysis includes shorter daily treatments done each day instead of three times a week. Because the treatment is done more often, you may experience fewer symptoms between dialysis. Rogosin professionals train you before you begin at home making sure you have all the confidence and skills needed.
Home Nocturnal Hemodialysis
Nocturnal home hemodialysis training is also an option with our experts at Rogosin Institute, which allows you to perform dialysis at home on your own. For this option, the dialysis treatment is done slowly overnight as you are sleeping. Typically, it’s done every other night or six times a week–varying depending on what your physician recommends for you. You can receive training for home nocturnal hemodialysis with or without a partner. Rogosin is one of few centers that offers real-time monitoring for this program so you are never dialyzing alone.
Traditional Home Hemodialysis
This is the most common home hemodialysis, which consists of a few hours of dialysis three times each week. For this type of home dialysis, you will be trained by one of our medical professionals here at the Rogosin Institute before you begin so you’ll know how to safely perform treatment on your own or with your caregiver.
