What are the different types of hemodialysis that can be performed?
The most common type of hemodialysis performed in the United States is in-center hemodialysis. Other types of hemodialysis include in-center nocturnal hemodialysis and home hemodialysis. In-center hemodialysis is typically performed three times per week, with a session duration of 3 to 4.5 hours. A fourth treatment per week is sometimes added if additional fluid needs to be removed due to excess weight gain between dialysis treatments.
