Program Highlights

Dialysis is the artificial process of eliminating waste (diffusion) and unwanted water (ultra- filtration) from the blood. Our kidneys do this naturally, however some people may have failed or damaged kidneys which cannot carry out the function properly. They may need dialysis.

At Chitkara University, the four-year graduate program includes rigorous internship thereby providing 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 chemistry, complications of renal failure, psycho-social aspects, Pharmacology related to Dialysis , management of complications during dialysis, extracorporeal treatments other than haemodialysis , different modalities of dialysis, patient care during dialysis and an overview of peritoneal dialysis and renal transplantation.

In short, students are trained to operate Dialysis equipment, inspect and maintain it. Other than technical training, subjects like human anatomy and physiology, renal diseases, other relevant diseases, blood chemistry, etc. are also covered in this course.

Bachelor of Science in Dialysis Therapy Technology (BSc. DTT)

Dialysis is a procedure to keep the body running as normal as possible while the kidneys are under repair or while a person waits for a kidney transplant. Without working kidneys or dialysis, salts and other waste products would accumulate in the blood and poison the person. Typical Haemodialysis treatments (using an artificial kidney) last about four hours and are needed about three times a week. Dialysis Therapists work with people whose kidneys no longer work properly or at all. Also sometimes referred to as Haemodialysis Technologists or patient care technologists (PCTs); they operate machines that remove wastes, salt, and extra water from patients’ blood while keeping safe levels of electrolytes in the body. The Dialysis therapists prepare patients and provide dialysis treatment safely and inform nephrologist regarding patient condition during the treatment and be able to provide suggestions regarding dialysis prescription for providing a safe dialysis treatment to patient if necessary. Dialysis Therapist is responsible for quality of haemodialysis providing to patient including dialysis water quality, monitoring of patients as well as machine during treatment and the management of complications.

Professional Competency statements after completion of the program

  • Demonstrate ability to formulate and implement a plan for examination of the patient.
  • Demonstrate ability to manage acute emergent complications on dialysis
  • Perform peritoneal dialysis
  • Administer medications under the supervision of nephrologist
  • Demonstrates ability to provide safe and effective care to the individual
  • Understands the process of operating dialysis equipment and how to perform alternate dialysis procedures.
  • Assesses the patient for any complications with an understanding of the problem and recognizes the need to report the complications to the physician or nephrologist
  • Responds effectively to the physical and emotional needs of the patient undergoing dialysis treatment
