Treatments Home Hemodialysis

Home hemodialysis is a type of medical treatment where a patient with kidney failure undergoes a dialysis procedure at home instead of in a dialysis center. This is done using a dialysis machine, which is a medical device that is used to filter waste and excess fluids from the blood. The process is similar to dialysis in a center, but the patient is able to monitor and control the process at home. Home hemodialysis is generally recommended for patients who are unable to travel to a dialysis center or who need more frequent hemodialysis treatments than the standard three times a week.

How Home hemodialysis works

Home hemodialysis is a process of filtering the blood outside of the body. During this process, a machine is used to remove waste, toxins and excess fluid from the body. The process is done by connecting a patient's blood to a machine and then the machine filters the blood through a dialyzer that contains a semipermeable membrane. The dialysis machine will then pump the clean blood back into the patient's body. This process is done several times a week and can last up to four hours. Home hemodialysis may be done with a partner or a caregiver to help with the process, or it may be done independently if the patient has been trained to do so.

What are the benefits of home hemodialysis?

Benefits of home hemodialysis may include greater freedom and flexibility, improved patient satisfaction, better blood pressure control, and improved quality of life.

1. Increased independence:
With home hemodialysis, patients can manage their own treatments, giving them a greater sense of freedom and independence.
2. More flexible:
With home hemodialysis, patients can dialyze more frequently and for longer periods of time than in-center hemodialysis. This allows for a greater degree of flexibility in scheduling treatments.
3. Improved quality of life:
Home hemodialysis can improve a patient’s quality of life by allowing them to dialyze in the comfort of their own home. This can lead to improved physical and mental health.
4. Reduced health care costs:
Home hemodialysis can significantly reduce health care costs, since patients can dialyze in their own home instead of traveling to a dialysis center.
5. Greater control:
Home hemodialysis gives patients more control over their treatments, allowing them to tailor their treatments to their specific needs.
