Home hemodialysis (HD) offers several clinical advantages over facility-based hemodialysis, and is a safe and effective form of renal replacement therapy that delivers superior care to HD patients. However, given its benefits, home HD is greatly underutilized throughout the world. The best way to do heamodialysis at home is by lying on an inclined bed. A hospital bed or adjustable bed will be an excellent choice. Simply lie on the adjustable bed with the head elevated and the nurses will take it from there. We recommend a queen or full size adjustable bed so that there is enough room either side of you for the equipment to be placed on the bed if necessary. Any popular brand of adjustable bed like Leggett and Platt, Reverie, Ergomotion will do just fine. You can checkout reliable online queen size adjustable beds reviews and decide which brand suits you best. Implementing Hemodialysis in the Home: A Practical Manual is a peer-reviewed, comprehensive, open-source, web-enabled, practical manual developed by The Global Forum for Home Hemodialysis, a panel comprised of internationally recognized nephrologists, home HD nurses, administrators, patient advocates, and a long-time home HD patient. This manual is designed as a guide to support healthcare teams worldwide as they develop a successful home HD program in their region or expand an existing program from their facilities to better serve their eligible patients with end stage renal disease.
