In brief: Dialysis

A specially trained nurse in dialysis would be best given the high level of expertise needed during the dialysis process.

For the questioner's benefit, did you know that a person can be trained to perform dialysis at home? You don't have to be a medical person - just careful and committed to the process. Ask your dialysis center or nephrologist about the benefits of home treatment: both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis can be done at home. LGromkoMD

In brief: Nurse

A dialysis nurse will be better able to help you through treatment and during the session.
