NxStage questions

  1. How are system wastes disposed of?

  2. Is there a heparin pump for nocturnal txs?

  3. Is NxStage adding a water system for nocturnal?

  4. Does Medicare require a partner or is training unit specific?

What are the possible ways that the drain line can be set up?

If the machine is used nocturnally, but can only run a max. of 6 hrs, how is this done?

It’s just a drain line, no water needed…well, currently…

All that’s needed is one receptable outlet for power and one drain line…you connect the included hose and run it to the bathroom faucet, depending how far it is you can connect two hoses…

As for using it as nocturnal you need to consult with your training clinic…
