In a large study of 3,619 patients receiving hemodialysis in the SNF setting between 2011-2015, patients receiving more frequent home hemodialysis experienced 34% lower risk of death and 23% lower risk of cardiovascular hospitalization, compared to patients receiving conventional hemodialysis in a SNF setting.
"Because patients undergoing dialysis have a high burden of cardiovascular disease, a 23% reduction in cardiovascular-related hospitalization is very clinically meaningful," said Dr.
"The significant survival and cardiovascular benefits associated with more frequent on-site home hemodialysis provides confidence and clear support for a new standard of care for dialysis patients within skilled nursing facilities," said

Despite the health benefits that home and more frequent hemodialysis may provide to those with chronic kidney disease, these forms of therapy are not for everyone. The reported benefits of home hemodialysis may not be experienced by all patients. The NxStage System is a prescription device and, like all medical devices, involves some risks. The risks associated with hemodialysis treatments in any environment include, but are not limited to, high blood pressure, fluid overload, low blood pressure, heart-related issues, and vascular access complications. The medical devices used in hemodialysis therapies may add additional risks including air entering the bloodstream, and blood loss due to clotting or accidental disconnection of the blood tubing set. When vascular access is exposed to more frequent use, infection of the site, and other access related complications may also be potential risks. Patients should consult with their doctor to understand the risks and responsibilities of home and/or more frequent hemodialysis using the NxStage System One. Patients and providers are encouraged to contact their state regulators to discuss state-specific regulations that may impact dialysis in the Skilled Nursing Facility setting.
