Home hemodialysis is advantageous as it eliminates problems such as preparation and travel time for treatment in the dialysis center. In addition, problems such as fatigue after dialysis are also reduced. Hemodialysis at home can be performed after the necessary equipment is provided and the patient or patient’s relative receives training on hemodialysis treatment.
Hemodialysis treatment at home is similar to the treatment performed in dialysis centers, but easier to use hemodialysis machines and water systems are installed in the patient’s home. A one-month training is given to the patient or the person who cares for patient care in dialysis centers. Patients or relatives who are entitled to receive a certificate after training can start hemodialysis at home. In addition, nurses working in hemodialysis centers can also support home hemodialysis treatment.
