    A patient's advocate

    The push is for "home"modalities. This is an underperformer. A patient needs to have a partner, a usable fistula, and be schooled in the "button-hole" technique. The middle-molecule clearance is sub-optimal and larger particles are removed poorly(Bet 2 Microglobin, phos). For the added advantage of convenience and better control of interdialytic wt gain/BP, your patients remain uremic with next stage devices. Your patients who weigh over 75kg will not achieve adequate clearance of single poot KT/V or equilibrated specimens. Sell it fast before people realize what they are doing offering this modality.
