Nocturnal Hemodialysis is a slower and longer treatment that takes place at night and lasts up to eight hours. With the help of your healthcare provider, you can decide if this treatment works for you. In center nocturnal dialysis is managed by special nurses and technicians who are available at the dialysis center throughout the night to help with the treatment.
In Center, Nocturnal Dialysis takes place anywhere between six hours to eight hours. It is a slower and more gentle process which makes it easier for your body to tolerate and remove a larger proportion of wastes and fluids from your blood. In-Center Nocturnal Dialysis ensures cleaner blood with better blood test reports. With nocturnal dialysis, the chances of drops in blood pressure and cramping are also minimal.
As Nocturnal dialysis takes place at night, it allows you more time during the day to do other things like spending time with family and friends. Many patients who undergo nocturnal dialysis have also reported feeling better and have a better appetite. With nocturnal dialysis, your diet can be less strict.
