Summary:

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. 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 CSTs and CSFAs assist the surgeon and provide care for these patients during the procedure, they need continuing education hours to increase their knowledge.  

Objectives:

The goal of this temporary dialysis catheters continuing education program is to provide surgical technologists with adequate information about temporary dialysis catheters, their indications, contraindications and potential complications. After completing this educational activity, the surgical technologist will be able to:
  • Discuss the indications and contraindications for dialysis catheter surgery
  • List equipment needed for insertion of dialysis catheters
  • Discuss complications that may occur after insertion of dialysis catheters
