   Designed for dialysis technicians, this course begins with a brief history of dialysis. It introduces basic concepts related to the chemistry of body fluids and electrolytes, followed by a review of renal physiology. From there, the course progresses to a discussion of pathology of renal failure (RF) and clinical manifestations of chronic kidney disease (CKD).

   The course then switches to equipment requirements of dialysis. It covers various dialyzers, concentrations of dialysate, principles of hemodialysis, water treatment principles, and prep and reprocessing principles as well as a detailed section on infection control.

   The text then addresses anticoagulation administration, including expected actions, lab values and side effects to monitor. There is a section on all types of access devices. It also discusses various challenges for dialysis patients, including poor nutrition and special renal diets, role of diabetes mellitus and renal disease, and medications commonly prescribed to dialysis patients. This course covers the entire lifespan, from pediatric dialysis cases to the elderly population.

   The course concludes with discussions on psychosocial aspects of dialysis therapy, maintaining quality in dialysis units, and how to perform basic math calculations that arise daily in the dialysis unit.
