When and for how long do I haemodialyse?



Haemodialysis is needed on a regular basis. The timing will depend on where you dialyse. If you dialyse at home your regime will be individualised and may include shorter or longer sessions, and between 3 to 6 treatments a week. The extra treatments or hours do actually improve your health outcomes.

Dialysing at home means that you can choose to dialyse when it suits you at any time during the day. At home it is possible to dialyse more often which has health benefits. If you dialise at home you may also be able to dialyse at night – nocturnal dialyse. This allow the time-consuming dialysis sessions to occur during sleep.

If you dialyse at a unit you will have permanent regular appointments, typically at least three times a week. Appointment times vary depending on the unit. Each unit dialysis session is for 4-5 hours.
