A dialysis technician is a licensed paraprofessional in the health care field who assists patients with kidney disorders, disease and renal failure through the use of an advanced form of machinery commonly referred to as a dialysis machine. While there are two methods of treatment for kidney or renal disorders, a certified dialysis technician who treats patients is called a hemodialysis technician. Hemodialysis technicians obtain certification through a nationally accredited examination. Peritoneal dialysis is another form of treatment for kidney disorder or failure; however, the patient self-administers daily treatment in the privacy of her home.
