Guidance Issuing OfficeCenter for Devices and Radiological Health
FDA has developed this guidance document to assist industry in preparing Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) applications for nocturnal home hemodialysis (NHHD) systems. These dialysis devices are intended to administer dialysis therapy in the home setting, while the patient is expected to be asleep.
FDA's guidance documents, including this guidance, do not establish legally enforceable responsibilities. Instead, guidances describe the Agency's current thinking on a topic and should be viewed only as recommendations, unless specific regulatory or statutory requirements are cited. The use of the word should in Agency guidances means that something is suggested or recommended, but not required.
You can submit online or written comments on any guidance at any time (see 21 CFR 10.115(g)(5))
