Our kidneys filter the wastes from our body and help in purifying our blood. But when the kidneys stop functioning, we need outside help to keep our body functioning properly by filtering out the wastes. This work is done through dialysis.

Through dialysis, excess water, toxins from the blood and other solutes get disposed of. This technique is used in patients who are suffering from acute kidney injury, chronic kidney failure or non-functional kidneys. It acts as a temporary measure in cases where a kidney transplant is an ultimate solution and permanent measure in cases where the kidneys cannot be transplanted.

A dialysis technician operates towards a successful dialysis process. They are trained to operate the machine used in dialysis, monitor the patients over whom the dialysis is performed, and adjust the fluid removal rates in the patients.

Throughout the process of dialysis, the technician is needed to be empathetic towards his/her patients, ensure the safety and proper functioning of the machine, efficient in administering local anesthesia, able to respond to emergency situations and work with close cooperation with the doctors and nurses. He/she also needs to keep the patient and his/her family updated on the process for better co-operation from them.

A dialysis technician becomes the primary caregiver of the patient undergoing dialysis treatment. The work calls for immense sense of responsibility, efficiency as well as the heart to deal with the emotional and physical necessities of the patient he or she is attending.

Thus, in order to become an efficient dialysis technician, you need to have in-depth knowledge of the functioning of the entire process as well as the mentality to work in a team and manage crisis situations.
