Question for NxStage users

Hi NxStage users,

About how long does set-up and take-down of the Nxstage system take? I’m interested to know how long the entire process - system set-up, treatment, and take-down, takes.

Thanks in advance!

Hi there, once proficient hook up and unhook take around 15 minutes each. Time on dialysis will depend on the prescription. I treat Sherry for 2 to 2.5 hours every other day and take about 1.5L of fluid or more depending on how much fluid she consumed the previous day.

Add an additional 15 minutes on the hook up for prep.

I see. Thanks so much for your reply!

Certainly 15 minutes to set up and 15 minutes to clean up. Also about 30 minutes a week spent doing inventory, rotating inventory and ordering inventory. If you have a Pure Flow for water another 20 minutes to set water up in the tank. Maintenance for Pure Flow about 20 minutes a month. Every 3 months or so you will need to change the Pak which is a 3 hour process. All in all it’s still a lot less time than going to the clinic. We love being home. Hope you will too!
