Equipment and water treatment for the daily management of home hemodialysis




home hemodialysis, water, ecology, nanotechnology, low flow, sorbent


Home hemodialysis (HD) must remain one technique among many in the treatment of end-stage renal failure. For this reason, everything must be done to ensure that patients, with the help of their health care team, have a choice. The management of accessibility to home water treatment is still difficult today despite the significant progress made in recent decades. The development of (Daily Home Hemodialysis) without having to install water treatment in a patient’s home is notable progress that has given the necessary impetus to the development of patient treatment at home. The challenges remain great—particularly in the development of sorbent dialysis, which should be addressed with the help of nanotechnology while working to increase the number of patients treated. There is also a need to create an eco-responsible attitude by reducing the amount and wastage of water used.
