Temporary Dialysis Catheters

Green Clock Hours: 3.00

As the average age of the patient population in the U.S. increases, both the prevalence of dialysis and associated comorbid medical disorders continue to rise. In fact, individuals 75 years of age and older have been identified as a significant portion of the population in need of hemodialysis (Aurshina, 2018). As a result, surgeons are placing temporary dialysis catheters in the operating room setting more frequently. Temporary dialysis catheters are designed for short-term use to provide dialysis to patients. Since Certified Surgical Technologists (CSTs) and Certified Surgical First Assistants (CSFAs) assist the surgeon and provide care for these patients during the procedure, they need continuing education hours to increase their knowledge.
The goal of this course is to provide surgical technologists in the operating room with information about temporary dialysis catheters, their indications, contraindications, and potential complications.
