Dialysis with the Convenience of Home

This treatment option requires the patient be trained by a Registered Nurse to administer the treatment in the comforts of the patient's own home. Home dialysis allows for more day-to-day schedule flexibility, minus the need to travel to the clinic for treatments. This allows for a more steady balance between treatment, work, travel and family.

Two primary treatments are available for home administration. See below.

Peritoneal dialysis is a type of dialysis which uses the peritoneum in a person's abdomen as the membrane through which fluid and dissolved substances are exchanged with the blood. It is used to remove excess fluid, correct electrolyte problems, and remove toxins in those with kidney failure.

Greater Flexibility:
  • Can be performed during the day or at night while asleep
  • Usually requiring 4 to 5 fill-and-drain exchanges each day


  • No needles involved in this type of treatment.
  • Less restrictive diet and fluid intake.
  • Patient has more control over when and where they dialyze.
  • It is possible to perform therapy while sleeping (APD).
  • This treatment may be performed in your home - independently or with the help of a friend or family member.
  • Allows the patient a more active role in their treatment, and has been proven to yield better outcomes.
  • May give the patient more energy and better blood pressure control.
  • Travel becomes much easier with a portable therapy.
  • Patients have access to a home dialysis nurse 24 hours a day if assistance is needed.

Home hemodialysis (HHD), is the provision of hemodialysis to purify the blood of a person whose kidneys are not working normally, in their own home. This often uses peritoneal dialysis and sometimes uses the same equipment that is normally used in a hospital setting. One advantage to doing dialysis at home is that it can be done more frequently and slowly, which reduces the "washed out" feeling and other symptoms caused by rapid ultrafiltration, and it can often be done at night, while the person is sleeping.

During home hemodialysis, a patient’s blood runs through medical tubing to a dialysis machine. The blood is reached using a prepared access site, typically from the patient's forearm.

The blood passes through a filter, called a dialyzer, in the machine. The dialyzer uses a solution, called dialysate, to absorb waste, toxins and excess fluid from the blood. After passing through the dialyzer, the filtered blood returns to the body.

Home Hemodialysis Process


  • Patients tend to dialyze more often at home, giving them better cleaning and fewer dietary and fluid restrictions.
  • This offers flexibility, including the option to dialyze during waking or while sleeping.
  • No need to arrange treatment with another facility while traveling.
  • Equipment is easy to transport.
  • Caregivers are not required for this form of treatment.
  • All home dialysis patients have access to a home dialysis nurse 24 hours a day if assistance is needed. This includes access to a technical support team for equipment issues.
