What is Dialysis and what is the role of a Dialysis Technician?

Dialysis is the artificial process of removing waste products, minerals, and excess fluid from the body when the kidneys have stopped functioning properly. Hemodialysis, the most common way to treat advanced kidney failure uses a machine to filter the blood before returning it to the patient. The purpose of dialysis is to keep the body running as normal as possible when the kidneys permanently fail. For a patient suffering from renal failure, dialysis can be a life-changing medical procedure as it greatly improves the quality of life despite their failing kidneys.


Dialysis technicians under the supervision of registered nurses and working closely with physicians and other medical professionals are responsible for operating the machines and for providing a safe and efficient patient care before, during and after dialysis treatments to ensure the highest quality of care for these patients.


At Dialysis School of San Diego, you are assured of getting in-depth classroom instruction and clinical training from our pool of highly qualified and experienced Registered Nurse instructors.
