Reviewing the Benefits of Nocturnal Intermittent Hemodialysis

Nocturnal in-center intermittent hemodialysis has clinical advantages and is an alternative that clinicians should not overlook. Longer treatment more efficiently removes small and mid-sized molecules, improves nutritional status, better controls anemia and hyperphosphatemia and reduces blood pressure and cardiovascular mortality. Nighttime dialysis also disturbs daytime eating patterns less. Patients report increased energy and improved daytime cognition.
