The reported benefits of home hemodialysis (HHD) may not be experienced by all patients. The NxStage system is a prescription device. All forms of hemodialysis involve some risks.
Certain risks associated with hemodialysis treatment are increased when performing solo HHD; if patients experience needles coming out, blood loss, or very low blood pressure during solo HHD, they may lose consciousness or otherwise become impaired during any health emergency which, when alone, could result in significant injury or death.
