5. Bring your medication along

FAQs – Planning

In the interest of your health and safety, we only accept patients who are stable and/or have been on dialysis for at least 3 months. Your physician and the physician at the holiday dialysis center will communicate with each other and jointly determine your fitness to travel.

Our network covers most of the popular travel destinations. However, if there is no center of ours at your desired destination, we will try our best to identify and refer you to another dialysis provider

We encourage you to plan your dialysis travel at least 6 weeks in advance, but we will try our best to accommodate your urgent travel needs. Please contact us and consult your healthcare team once you have such plans.

The spread of blood borne virus infections, such as Hepatitis and to a lesser extent HIV, varies between countries. Therefore traveling abroad can increase the risk of exposure to such infections.

Before you travel, you may consult with your doctor to discuss such risks (especially your Hepatitis B immunity) and arrange vaccination, if needed. Such risks do not mean that you should not travel abroad, but you may want to take certain precautions to minimize the risk of infection.

Fresenius Kidney Care dialysis centers follow strict infection prevention and control procedures to reduce the risk of infection, but you may still be exposed to blood borne viruses during your trip if you have undergone any medical, cosmetic or dental procedures, or if you have received blood transfusions, body piercings etc. Thus, your doctor may recommend a blood test before and on your return, to monitor your immune status.

FAQs – Booking

1. Holiday dialysis request form A booking form which includes your contact details, holiday details (destination, the period of time), required dialysis time, frequency, modality, and other medical and health information. Please read the Terms and Conditions carefully to understand your rights and obligations. 2. Patient information and data consent form This consent form allows us to use your personal and medical data for the booking. You may withdraw your consent at any time but in that case we would not be able to assist with the coordination of your holiday dialysis any further. 3. ‘Transfer of Care’ letter

This letter from your doctor confirms your medical stability, medical history, ability to travel, and dialysis prescription.

Our outbound holiday dialysis coordination service is free of charge. However, your selected holiday dialysis center in the destination may charge a nominal administrative fee for arranging the holiday dialysis treatments and the review of the medical record. The fee is part of the treatment fee, the amount of which will be provided to you before you confirm the booking.

The holiday dialysis treatment fee includes the dialysis treatments, consumables, and administrative fee, if any. Any additional services, such as doctor’s consultation and medication will be charged separately.

Unless the cancellation is due to medical reasons (medical proof is required), please notify us at least 14 days before the commencement of the holiday dialysis treatments for any cancellation.

Otherwise, a cancellation fee may be charged.

FAQs – Arrival

We do not provide such services. However, we will provide information on how to access our dialysis center, together with the treatment booking confirmation letter, which will help you to make your own transport arrangements.

Most of our clinic staff speak English and the local language. In case this arrangement does not work for you, please ensure that you have someone with you who can translate on your behalf.

You are required to settle the payment (expenses and applicable taxes included) at the selected holiday dialysis center before the first treatment commences.

Please pay in the currency quoted by the selected holiday dialysis center.

Insurance policy varies among different countries and the plan that you are in. Please check with your insurance provider to understand if your holiday dialysis treatment is covered. Also, find out what information you will need to take with you.

  • Translator, if you do not understand any of the spoken languages at the holiday dialysis center
  • Copies of up-to-date medical records
  • Copies of the last 3 treatment records
  • Latest lab test results (within 1 month of holiday dialysis treatment)
  • Current dialysis prescription
  • Allergy list
  • A national form of photo ID e.g. passport or driver’s license
  • Advanced care directives if you have one (e.g., a living will)
  • Payment for your treatment, if you have not settled the payment yet

Contact us for further information about coordinating your holiday dialysis.

fresenius kidney care travel

dkostel asked a question.

Hello, I am traveling with my father and he will need dialysis in 1 week. So far he doesn't have an appointment and his appointed rep is impossible to get ahold of and doesn't return calls. I've asked for a supervisor call back but no luck there either. I started this process over a moonth ago and we still don't have an appointment. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

fresenius kidney care travel

Have you tried corporate offices? Let them know that you are documenting all your calls and Fresenius's lack of response. Also contact his insurance company because you intend to hold all responsible if any problems were to occur. If he is on Medicare, try contacting them too. Good luck.

  • DOI: 10.1111/hdi.12503

Introduction: There is little comparable information about hemodialysis (HD) practices in low- and middle income countries, including Russia. Evaluation of HD in Russia and its international comparisons could highlight factors providing opportunities for improvement.

Methods: We examined treatment patterns for 481 prevalent HD patients in 20 Russian facilities, and compared them to contemporary data for 8512 patients from 311 facilities in seven European countries, Japan, and North America. Data were collected according to the uniform methodology of the Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study, phase 5.

Findings: Compared to other regions, Russian patients were younger (mean age 53.4 years), had a lower percent of males (52.5%), higher arteriovenous fistula use (89.7%), and longer treatment time (mean: 252 minutes, SD: 37 minutes). Mean single pool Kt/V was 1.49 (SD 0.58). Prescription of dialysate calcium 3.5 mEq/L and aluminum-based phosphate binders were high (15.2% and 17.6% of patients, respectively), while intravenous vitamin D and cinacalcet were low (3.3% and 2.2%, respectively). The percents with parathyroid hormone >600 pg/mL (30.9%) and serum phosphate >1.78 mmol/L (37.7%) were high. Use of erythropoetin stimulating agents (78%) was lower, but hemoglobin, ferritin, and transferrin saturation were generally comparable to North America and Europe.

Discussion: These detailed data for hemodialysis in Russia demonstrate that many practice patterns contrasted sharply to those in Europe, Japan, and North America, while other features were similar. Our analysis revealed several positive and some less favorable treatment patterns in Russia that represent opportunities for improving patient care and outcomes.

Keywords: Anemia; calcium; hemodialysis; parathyroid hormone; phosphate; practice patterns.

In BLISS-LN (GSK BEL114054), a Phase 3 trial of adults with LN treated with BEL 10 mg/kg/month IV or placebo (PBO), + ST, BEL resulted in significantly more kidney responses (Primary Efficacy Renal Response [PERR] and Complete Renal Response [CRR]), and greater improvements in anti-dsDNA and anti-C1q autoantibodies and complement C3 and C4 levels than PBO over 104 weeks (wks). This post hoc analysis of BLISS-LN assessed the characteristics of patients with LN most likely to benefit from the addition of BEL to ST.

Post hoc logistic regression models tested the ability of potential baseline (BL) biomarker levels and biomarker level changes in the first 12 months of treatment to predict PERR and/or CRR at Wk 104.

Overall, 446 patients were evaluated. High BL anti-C1q predicted a PERR with BEL and a CRR with PBO ( Table ). High BL levels of immunoglobulin (Ig)A and a decrease in IgA at Wk 8 with BEL were predictive of PERR, and high BL levels of naïve B cells were predictive of PERR and CRR to BEL. Low BL plasmablasts, and a decrease in IgA or IgM at Wk 24 predicted a PERR in both groups and a decrease in IgA at Wk 24 predicted CRR to BEL. A reduction in anti-C1q at Wk 52 and of uPCR at Wk 12 also predicted PERR and CRR in both groups. Changes in B-cell subsets were not predictive of a response in the BEL group.

High levels of IgA and naïve B cells at BEL initiation, as well as early reductions in IgA, predicted attainment of PERR and/or CRR for BEL but not PBO. Early reductions in uPCR predicted responses regardless of whether patients received BEL or PBO.
