For a significant number of End Stage Renal Disease patients, Home Hemodialysis (HHD) presents a viable alternative to in-center treatment.
Studies have also shown that the patients themselves perceive significant benefits in dialyzing at home. More flexibility in choosing the time of day to perform dialysis gives them greater freedom in their life. As a result, they often feel better, both emotionally and physically, after converting to home dialysis. 1
Patients are able to dialyze more frequently, with beneficial results including improved blood pressure control, reduced medication, and the ability to have a more enjoyable diet and live a more normal life. 1
Centered around the dialysis machine 5008S CorDiax, Fresenius Medical Care has developed a comprehensive portfolio of optimized complementary products that make partner-assisted or self hemodialysis treatment reliable and easy.
