The engineers, scientists and physicians at Fresenius Renal Technologies have dedicated their careers to improving the treatment for patients who require dialysis to live.
They have created the 2008K@home hemodialysis system so you have the flexibility (based on your physician's prescription) to perform a variety of therapy options, including daily treatments, every other day, or conventional three times a week. Any of these treatments can be long or short in duration.
No other home hemodialysis system is able to offer so many options. If you have any questions about which treatment is best for you, speak with your physician.
Daily treatments are done at home for two to three hours, about five or six times per week. Extended treatments are done at home for six to eight hours, five or six times per week.
Every other day home hemodialysis is a treatment schedule that is more frequent than conventional and less frequent than daily treatments. These treatments last about four hours and you dialyze every other day.
Conventional home hemodialysis is similar to the in-center treatment routine. Treatments are done at home, last about four hours, and are performed three days per week.
For acute and chronic patients, livinq with kidney disease can bring about many changes in your life and the way you live. When it comes to choosing a treatment option, the ultimate goal is to select one that best suits your individual lifestyle and prescription needs.
When selecting a treatment that is best for you, it is important to consider the time commitment for you and your family. Whether you choose in-center HD or an HHD option, you should consider the amount of time it will take. Keep in mind, you may still be required to visit your clinic periodically to meet with your care team.
