Phlebotomy Career Training is pleased to now offer their Dialysis training program for $500. The Dialysis technician will learn about the dialyzer machines and their operation. Patients’ who are in need of dialysis are in last stage renal failure. End stage renal failure is a very serious life threatening event. Renal failure prevents the body from processing waste through the kidneys. The kidneys are responsible for filtering waste products from the blood such as urea and nitrogen in addition to other waste products. Kidney filtration is responsible for stabilizing the blood. Patients who undergo dialysis have suffered damage to their kidneys from either prolonged high blood pressure or complications due to diabetes. Classes at our school are taught by Registered Nurses.
(I.) Students will learn the main concepts of how to care for the dialysis patient and know how to recognize the subtle signs and symptoms of worsening patients conditions. Some of the concepts and training are the following:
1. pathophysiology of renal failure
2. electrolyte imbalances
3. disease states associated with renal failure
4. anatomy and physiology of the kidney
5. hemodialysis process
6. cannulation of the dialysis patient
7. management of emergencies during dialysis
8. calculations relating to the removal of fluid from the patient
9. vital signs such as blood pressure, pulse, temperature, pulse oximetry
10. assessment of pain
11. neurological checks
12. recognizing aneurysms
13. perform 6 venipunctures
Students who are interested in attending upcoming classes should possess at least 6 months to one year of direct patient care experience such as nursing assistant training, EMT training or direct worker experience. The uniform for this class is ciel blue. Students should have a negative TB and be able to pass a state background check. There is a $35 urine drug screen done on site by week 3.
