During home hemodialysis, your blood is filtered outside of your body through a dialyzer to remove unwanted waste, toxins and excess fluids.
Hemodialysis uses a solution called dialysate to remove unwanted substances from your blood. Clean, chemically balanced blood is then returned to your body.
The basic process is exactly the same as in-center hemodialysis, only it's done in the comfort of your own home with slightly different equipment.
You can able to do at-home Hemodialysis on your own, without assistance.
You have the comfort of being home during treatment—while having access to an on-call nurse over the phone. If prescribed by your doctor, you can stay on your machine longer or more frequently, which can help you feel better. Along with your doctor or nurse's advice, you can choose your time for treatments, so you have more flexibility for work or school or other social activities.
