Dialysis Technologist with Phlebotomy Technician

Hemodialysis or dialysis is a medical procedure in which waste products and extra free water are removed from the blood when the kidneys are in a state of kidney failure (kidneys are not functioning normally). Hemodialysis technicians are responsible for operating the dialysis machines and monitoring the patients undergoing treatment. Therefore Dialysis Technicians have both patient and equipment care responsibilities. During treatment, the blood travels through tubes from the patient’s body into the dialysis machine. While the blood is in the machine, it goes through a filter called a dialyzer, which removes waste and extra fluid. Once blood has been cleaned, it travels through tubes from the dialysis machine back into patient’s body.

Dialysis is usually administered either in the hospitals or in specially equipped dialysis centers. Most dialysis technicians are employed by hospitals, hospital outpatient clinics or dialysis centers. The Dialysis technicians are supervised by registered nurses.
