Bachelor of Sciencein Renal Dialysis Technology ( BSc Dialysis Technology)
Dialysis Technology is a highly specialized field of nephrology (care of the kidneys). Dialysis is a treatment for patients with temporary or permanent kidney failure. Dialysis Technicians operate machines that remove waste and excess fluids from the blood of patients whose kidneys can no longer carry out those functions. Dialysis technicians must fully understand the operation of the kidney dialysis machines. They are responsible for their operation, cleaning, and sterilization. Dialysis technologists are also responsible for ensuring the proper functioning of dialysis machines; in some settings they perform routine equipment maintenance and repairs. They are often involved in patient education, instructing patients and families about in-home dialysis treatment and reinforcing importance of adherence to prescribed treatment.
