Can the NxStage be used just 3 or 4 days a week? instead of,

Can I use it just 3 or 4 days a week instead of daily? Is it not as effecient as a regular in-center machine?

Its capabale and it can, but it depends on prescription they give you…analaysis, labs and so on.

There’s some patients where I was trained that use it 5 days a week, another patient uses it 3 times a week BUT at 5 hours per session…BIG guy…the whole point doing it daily is so that its gentle on the heart and your body…

NxStage System One is one powerful little monster…hehehe :twisted: …don’t get decieved by its look! It has one of the most important feautures and that’s Volumetric control, in which you have control on how much water you want taken out… 8)
