Primary reasons for hospitalization in home hemodialysis patients

What are the primary reasons for hospitalization in home hemodialysis patients?

Studies have shown that home hemodialysis patients have significantly lower rates of hospitalization due to cardiovascular disease (specifically heart failure and hypertension related causes) when matched to conventional in-center HD patients.

When compared with PD, home hemodialysis patients have a significantly lower composite (combined causes being infection, cardiac, access related, or bleeding) hospitalization rates.

Home hemodialysis patients when compared with in-center HD patients have significantly higher rates of infection-associated hospitalizations, specifically sepsis and metastatic infections of the bone and heart.
