Please note that the experiences and results reported by these patients will not necessarily be experienced by another patient. All patients differ and their experiences and results will vary.

Patients on NxStage typically are prescribed to perform treatments 5 to 6 days per week at 2.5 to 3 hours per treatment.
The NxStage 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 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.
