Dialysis is a treatment option for kidney disease. This disease causes your kidneys to fail leaving your body holding in all of the excess waste in your bloodstream. The two most common types of dialysis are hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Both of these forms use a dialyzer to help extract, filter, and return the blood. Dialysis can be done in a few places and times, including at your home, in a dialysis center with other patients, and a center that offers the treatment at night while you sleep.

Peritoneal Dialysis is one of the forms of treatment for dialysis patients. For this form of dialysis, the patient administers their own treatment after a soft tube is placed in the patient's abdomen. There are two main types of peritoneal dialysis, Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis or CAPD and Continuous Cycler-Assisted Peritoneal Dialysis or CCPD. The first, CAPD, does not need a machine to be used. For this type, the patient will hook them self up to a new bag of the dialysis solution which will fill up in their abdomen and gather all of the excess waste to be drained in a matter of hours. This process would be repeated a few times a day as requested by the doctor. CCPD , however, does require a machine, this form of dialysis would take place at night while the patient sleeps. Because the patient will receive this treatment for such an extended time at night, they will only require one during the day. Of course there are downsides to both, but the affects depend on the patient.

In this video, a dialysis patient named Hector shows and explains the dialysis process he has been going through on and off for about 19 years. First, Chris, a certified Clinical Hemo-Technician, cleans the fistula to ensure the areas are safe for him to inject the two needles, the Venus and the Arterial line. Once the needles are injected, Chris will extract some of Hector's blood out of the Arterial port for tests and injects Heparin in through the Venus port to ensure Hector's blood won't clot. Once he is all hooked up to the dialyzer, the treatment begins. Hector is prescribed to be on the machine for four hours, so while the machine runs, Hector relaxes. After Hector's time is about done, Chris will stop Hector's blood from coming out of the Arterial port and clean the line with Saline. He then will allow the rest of the blood already in the machine to flow through the dialyzer and return to Hector's body.

About The Job - Trauma nurses will usually interact with and take care of not only patients with serious problems and injuries, they will also handle recovering patients. Children can be a high risk in a trauma nurse's job, young children may not have the ability to tell the nurse what exactly is wrong while they are in the emergency room and the nurse needs to know exactly what stage of development the child is in during recovery so they can be sure of what they can be sure on how to treat them physically and emotionally.

Administering Dugs - Knowing the specifics on drugs, their affects, and different allergies patients may have is a large part of the job. An allergic reaction to the medication administered can have devastating affects on the patients.
Julia Koehn's comment, February 17, 2014 10:31 AM
Communication - Communication can be difficult for patients, many patients enter the emergency room scared and in extreme amounts of pain. Due to this, trauma nurses use the FLACC pain scale which is a scale from 1-10 to understand the severity of the patient's condition. This scale is used mainly on patients who are unable to or are having difficultly communicating the problems to the nurse.

Dialysis is needed when your kidneys stop working properly and allow the excess waste to flow through your body. Dialysis doesn't only help with kidney failure, it can also help clean your body of drugs and alcohol. There are two kinds of dialysis, hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Hemodialysis is typically done in a dialysis center where the nurses connect you to a machine that extorts, filters, and returns your blood back into your body. Peritoneal dialysis can be done either at home or in a dialysis center. This type of dialysis treatment enters through your abdomen and fills it with the dialysis solution. While the solution sits in the abdomen, it pulls all the waste out of the bloodstream drains it into another bag.
