Split Rock Room

Description: We will review the different types of dialysis, what a dialysis patient must go through on a daily basis and the high maintenance each type of dialysis requires.  We will also review what things EMS personnel are likely to find when responding to a patient who happens to have renal failure or is on dialysis despite what the reason for calling EMS was.

Objectives:

  • List at least three risk factors for developing renal failure.
  • Understand what effects renal failure has on the body and the common complications the patients experience when on dialysis
  • List the two different types of dialysis and the risks and benefits of both.
  • List the most common potentially lethal condition associated with renal failure and the medications needed to improve the patient’s outcome.
