The increasing responsibility of the nursing profession in the delivery of complicated medical care is nowhere more evident than in the dialysis unit. Dialysis nursing is now a recognized subspecialty with its own professional society and probable future accreditation boards. In many cases, the dialysis nurse is better informed about dialytic techniques and equipment than is the attending physician.
Although this book is written primarily for dialysis nurses, it should be valuable reading for attending physicians to guide them in their in-service training programs and provide an orientation they may be lacking. The 12 chapters are divided into three sections.
