Home Hemodialysis for Independent
and Empowered Patients.
What is Home Hemodialysis?
Home hemodialysis (HHD) is a therapy for kidney failure. The procedure is the same as that of outpatient hemodialysis, but is performed in the comfort of the patient’s own home using the same equipment.
Patients dialyzing at home no longer need to travel to a dialysis clinic for dialysis treatment.
However, the treating nephrologist is still responsible for treatment and prescribing therapy and medications. The HHD machine is set up and installed at home in a suitable room.
Regular maintenance of the equipment is performed at home and treatment materials are delivered to the patient’s home.
Patients are trained by D.med therapy specialists to perform the treatment on their own. After completing the training program, patients have the flexibility to perform dialysis on their own schedule (e.g., in the evening after work). If questions or problems arise during treatment, D.med’s therapy specialists are available around the clock to provide support as needed.

All patients receive training to perform the treatment alone at their homes. Family members and other caregivers can be trained as well.
Round-the-clock care and help in case of complications and questions as well as regular visits at home.
