Dialysis technicians maintain and operate the equipments used for dialysis. They also prepare patients before dialysis, like checking their vital signs, weight, recording the mental and physical state of the patient, giving local anesthesia, and monitor patients progress pre, in and post dialysis. They assist in patient's recovery and help them adjust to the medical condition.
They work very closely with the patient and build a relationship with compassion and empathy. They need to be mentally strong to cope up with the condition of the patients and physically strong to move the patients when needed.
They work mostly in Clinics, Hospitals and Dialysis Centres in a clean environment. They work under the supervision of trained Dialysis Nurses.
