Once a special education teacher and ghost tour guide in Savannah, Robby took to the couch and video games when dialysis took all the energy out of him. Wanting to feel in control of his life again, he chose NxStage nocturnal home dialysis. Today he is running his own tour group, enjoying life with his family and feeling like he has the world in his hands.
NxStage’s System One gives patients the flexibility to perform their treatments during the day or at night while they sleep. Patients on NxStage typically perform treatments five to six days per week. Performing more frequent home hemodialysis may improve your quality of life and clinical benefits.
System One is a prescription device. All forms of hemodialysis, including treatments performed in-center and at home, involve some risks. In addition, there are certain risks unique to treatment in the home environment. Patients differ and not everyone will experience the reported benefits of more frequent home hemodialysis. Talk to your doctor to see if more frequent home hemodialysis during the day or overnight with NxStage is right for you.
Certain risks associated with hemodialysis treatment are increased when performing nocturnal therapy due to the length of treatment time and because therapy is performed while the patient and care partner are sleeping.
