Dialysis Technician

As kidney failure continues to be a growing national health problem, kidney disease is driving the growing demand for well-trained dialysis technicians. Dialysis technicians are employed in hospitals, outpatient clinics, and other medical facilities. While most technician training has historically been done “on-the-job,” today’s healthcare employers are seeking well-trained technicians who possess the necessary knowledge and skills to fill this growing number of positions.

This program provides learners the knowledge and skills needed to perform the duties required of dialysis technicians. Under the supervision of physicians and registered nurses, dialysis technicians operate kidney dialysis machines, prepare dialyzer reprocessing and delivery systems, as well as maintain and repair equipment. Furthermore, technicians work with patients during dialysis procedures and monitor and record vital signs, as well as administer local anesthetics and drugs as needed. Dialysis technicians must assess patients for any complications that occur during the procedure and be ready to take the necessary emergency measures, including administering oxygen or performing basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Additionally, they may also be involved in the training of patients for at-home dialysis treatment and providing the emotional support patients need for self-care.

Program Objectives

After completing this program, learners will be able to:

  • Explain basic chemistry of body fluids, renal physiology, and the pathology of renal failure
  • Explain the principles of hemodialysis including the dialysate, dialyzer, delivery system, and water treatment for dialysis
