Introduced at DaVita in July 2004, nocturnal dialysis is a form of treatment that allows patients to dialyze in-clinic while sleeping overnight - offering kidney care patients the freedom to receive renal replacement therapy while still maintaining a full and active schedule by day, even allowing patients to continue working.

The longer treatment time allows for reduced flow rates, which can be helpful for patients who have complications from conventional dialysis. Patients on nocturnal dialysis often enjoy reduced dependency on blood-pressure medications and an overall improved feeling of wellness.

"DaVita continues to improve care by moving toward a patient-centric approach to modality offerings, which pairs patients with the right modality for their medical needs and social circumstances," said Allen R.
