The HD therapy is used to treat an estimated 2 million end-stage renal disease patients worldwide, and is most often performed in a clinic but also can be performed at home. The therapy works by cleaning the blood of toxins and removing extra fluids when it is pumped through an external filter, or dialyser. Baxter’s portfolio of innovative HD dialysis systems, dialysers, solutions and services provide a range of treatment options for healthcare providers around the world.
