What is dialysis?

Dialysis is the process in which solutes or waste and fluid are removed from a person’s blood.

What is a dialysis machine?

Dialysis machines remove waste and excess fluids from the blood of patients whose kidneys can no longer work.

What is a Hemodialysis Technician?

Hemodialysis technicians or dialysis technicians operate hemodialysis machines that help sustain patients who have damaged kidneys.

Dialysis technicians are also referred to as renal dialysis technicians, hemodialysis technicians, dialysis technologists, and nephrology technicians.

These technicians prepare patients for dialysis, monitor them and the machine during dialysis, and perform required procedures when dialysis is completed.

Their tasks also include placing needles in a dialysis fistula and, in some states, cleaning a dialysis catheter and using it to connect the patient to the machine.

Dialysis technicians also carefully monitor and record the weight and vital signs of patients before, during, and after the blood cleansing process.

Where can Dialysis Technicians work?

Dialysis Technicians can work in hospitals, dialysis clinics, assisted living & nursing homes offering dialysis services, and in-home dialysis programs.

What is the salary for a Dialysis Technician?

The median annual salary for a Dialysis Technician in the United States is $42,997. The salary can vary based on the state.
