What is Home hemodialysis?
Home hemodialysis (HHD), is the provision of hemodialysis in the home of people with stage 5 chronic kidney disease. Hemodialysis removes extra fluid and wastes from your body by constantly moving your blood through a filter. The filter, known as a dialyzer or artificial kidney, is used with a dialysis machine. Hemodialysis can be done at home or in a dialysis treatment center.
