What Hemodialysis Technicians do?

While healthy kidneys have several functions in the body, the most well-known job is to produce urine. When kidney function goes below 10% to 15% kidneys are no longer able to filter the blood and make urine. This causes toxins to build up in the body along with excess fluid. Fortunately, we live in a time when there are treatments and medicines that can replace the functions of the kidneys and keep the body alive. One type of renal replacement therapy meaning a treatment that replaces kidney function is hemodialysis. Hemodialysis is a therapy that filters waste, removes extra fluid and balances electrolytes (sodium, potassium, bicarbonate, chloride, calcium, magnesium and phosphate).

Hemodialysis technician helps patients with end stage renal disease (permanent kidney failure) receive safe and effective dialysis treatments by learning what dialysis is, how dialysis was developed, how to use and maintain dialysis equipment, how to ensure high quality care for patients and how to maintain professionalism.
