Description of the Webinar
Home hemodialysis is not new, but more frequent hemodialysis performed in the home has recently been promoted as a superior alternative to in-center dialysis. In this webinar, we will review benefits of more frequent hemodialysis, prescription options (nocturnal versus short daily), hemodialysis machine options, the concept of a low volume high efficiency approach, and potential complications as well as measures to prevent their occurence.
This webinar was held on Friday, December 2nd from 9AM - 10AM EST (New York time).
