Not only are dialysis access creation and maintenance
prone to complications, but patients
suffering from end-stage renal disease and its
comorbidities generally have a high risk of adverse
events during their continuous treatment.
Preventive strategies are key to avoid
harm and to improve the outcome of the
treatment of the growing number of patients
with chronic kidney failure, especially as doctors
and nurses are not always aware of the
consequences of unsafe behavior.
This publication is intended for health care
professionals – nurses as well as doctors – and
aims to raise the awareness of patient safety
aspects, combining medical education with
evidence-based medicine. After a general
overview of the topic, an international panel
of authors provides a diversified insight into
important concepts and technical tricks essential
to create and maintain a functional
dialysis access.
