Two-semester credits, 85 hours (35 lecture, 20 laboratories, 30 clinical)
Students learn about the two basic types of vascular access and how access is necessary for sufficient blood supply to be delivered at a high flow rate for adequate dialysis without compromising circulation to the arm or other extremity and caring for each type of vascular access. By the end of this course, students can assemble and prepare the artificial kidneys (non-reuse and reprocessed), operate the fluid delivery system (dialysis machine), prepare the dialyzing fluid, initiate, and conclude the dialysis treatment.
