How does System One work?

The compact size and simplicity of System One make it easy to use anywhere in your home or on the road.

Home hemodialysis is typically done with just four components:

Cartridge

  • The easy-to-use drop-in cartridge allows for easy set-up and wipe-down after treatments.

System One

  • This is the heart of the system that contains the fluid pumps and system controls
  • Simple interface is easy to understand and use
  • Its portability gives you the freedom to dialyze in any room of your house

PureFlow SL

  • The dialysate preparation system combines tap water and concentrate to create dialysate
  • A faucet or under-sink connection and standard electrical outlet are all that are required to operate PureFlow SL

  • The Express Fluid Warmer delivers warmed dialysate from the dialysate bags to the cartridge
  • Pre-mixed dialysate bags can be used as an alternative to the PureFlow SL
  • By using dialysate bags patients have the freedom to dialyze wherever they go

To begin each treatment, you insert a new cartridge into System One, where it is automatically prepared for use.

The dialysate fluid is prepared in advance, when using the PureFlow SL, or you can use premixed bags (see Travel Setup)

During treatment, System One cleans your blood.

Blood and dialysate pass through the filter to clean the blood. Used dialysate, wastes and excess fluids are removed from the blood and routed through a waste line on the cartridge into a sink, toilet or drain

Therapy is complete when the prescribed dialysate volume has been delivered.

Daily supplies are thrown away, and the Cycler is wiped down after use

Treatment Process

A training nurse at your dialysis center will train you and your care partner. You will learn how to access your blood, operate the system, monitor your vital signs, administer medications and handle emergency situations. One of the requirements for doing home hemodialysis with NxStage System One is that you have a care partner who is willing to monitor your home care. A care partner does not have to be a live-in relative, it can be a friend, neighbor, pastor or another individual trained on System One.
