Colin that looks like a great little machine. Perfect!
I hope the chinese doctor is fully aware that in the US alone 35,000 people are having home dialysis. If he says no then I would also like a second opinion from a western 'qualified' doctor ;-) but lets see what he says.

If he gives the green light then I think there are only hurdles and not barriers to all this. For example, depending on the type of machine, we may also need a generator, in case of any power cuts. A water purifier and pump for her home or maybe even barrels of water if they do not have a supply in her home. Even if it is not possible to have it located in her home, then a local clinic or any suitable facility could provide the room? The machine can be transported there easily.

As I said If the doctor gives it the thumbs up, then I think there are only small hurdles to get over not barriers.
Fingers crossed!

of course we have to be sure it will work for Li Ping so we need to look into it and do some research. But this is too big to just dismiss. Lets hope this will work for her.

Alpage48 thanks for the comment and yes with what i have been reading i believe treatment along with advanced technology has improved, which is why so many people can now have treatment at home.

Gompo, what sort of a negative comment is that? Take your blinkers off read the facts and educated yourself. Don't just dismiss something you know nothing about.

This is common practice now! This gives patients freedom by saving on journeys to hospitals and on the costs of treatment.

according to the United States Renal Data System's 2010 figures, which came out this morning. Of those, only about 35,000 do dialysis at home, and just 5,500 of them do home hemodialyisis-ABCNews

just to add to this. It wouldn't surprise me if they make the machines in China, so the cost would be even less. David
