In this video, Rich Kimmel of Dialyspa in Houston, Texas offers practical advice for patient training. The podcast is a general discussion of strategies for patient training and in no way substitutes for the Instructions for Use of the NxStage System One or any other NxStage published training material.
The reported benefits of home hemodialysis may not be experienced by all patients.
The NxStage System One is a prescription device and, like all medical devices, involves some risks. Certain risks are unique to the home. Treatments at home are done without the presence of medical personnel and on-site technical support. Patients and their partners must be trained on what to do and how to get medical or technical help if needed.
