Overview

B. Sc. Dialysis Therapy is an Undergraduate Program offered by Amrita Center for Allied Health Sciences.

Dialysis is the artificial process of eliminating waste (diffusion) and unwanted water (ultra- filtration) from the blood. Our kidneys do this naturally. Some people, however, may have failed or damaged kidneys which cannot carry out the function properly – they may need dialysis. Dialysis may be used for patients who have become ill and have acute kidney failure (temporary loss of kidney function), or for fairly stable patients who have permanently lost kidney function.

In recent years the technology and techniques in the dialysis process have evolved opening many new options for those who require frequent dialysis procedures. The number of patients with Chronic Kidney Disease is also increasing.

Three year graduate program with one year internship in Dialysis provides students with the opportunity to study the principles of dialysis, basic medical science of the kidney, fluid and electrolyte balance, hematologic aspects, infectious diseases, dialysis systems and equipment, vascular access to circulation, blood chemistries, complications of renal failure, psychosocial aspects and an overview of peritoneal dialysis and renal transplantation. The program seeks to prepare students to work under the supervision of highly skilled medical professionals.

A dialysis technician can set up, evaluate, operate, and troubleshoot dialysis machines, and this knowledge can be used to find work in quality control or other areas in dialysis machine manufacturing. The technician is also trained to monitor the condition of the patient, including taking vital signs and other medical evaluation criteria.
