The ideal home hemodialysis machine

Kjellstrand, Carl and Kjellstrand, Per LU (2008) In Hemodialysis International 12(Suppl. 1). p.33-39
Abstract
Daily home hemodialysis (HD) patients have a much superior survival rate than patients on regular, 3 times a week in-center HD or on peritoneal dialysis. Present-day HD machines are unsuitable for use at home by patients. We present our concept of the ideal home HD machine that allows daily short and long HD, does all the work preparing for and cleaning up after dialysis, has an intravenous infusion system controlled by the patient, needs no systemic anticoagulation, and teaches and interacts with the patient during dialysis. To fulfill these functionalities, the dialyzer and blood tubing must be integrated with the machine and replaced less often than monthly, the machine must be capable of at least 200 L/week of hemodiafiltration,...
