While ports or fistulas are necessary for kidney disease, especially when dealing with dialysis, they can often cause issues at home. The Home Emergency Lifeline Kit ensures having all the supplies you need in one place.
Each kit comes with Bandaids, Sponges, Gloves, Roll Adhesive Bandage, and a Tourniquet. Being prepared is necessary for dealing with home emergencies and even more essential when dealing with the side effects of dialysis. Fistulas generally don’t cause problems but can start bleeding. Each kit comes with instructions on caring for your fistula and a list of common warning signs to prepare to handle your fistula.
The Home Emergency Lifeline Kit is $24.99 and comes in red or blue and supplies to handle any emergency at home. Your dialysis care team is there for support, so please let them know if you have problems with the fistula. The Kidney Nurse Expert, Steve Belcher, RN, MSN, has spent years bringing education to urban communities at high risk for chronic disease.
