Nephrology and Urology Nursing
Nephrology Nursing is the field of nursing with a focus on the most extreme consideration of the discriminatingly sick or unsteady chronic kidney patients. These patients are complex and frequently have concomitant illnesses like hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Haemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, transplant, continuous renal replacement therapy, and other extracorporeal therapies should all be familiar to nurses caring for patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD).
Urology nurses concentrate on diseases that affect every part of the urinary tract, including the bladder, kidney, and urethra. These nurses provide care for illnesses like cancer and kidney stones. They also provide treatment for patients having operations like prostate surgery and vasectomy. The urology nurse conducts urinary health examinations, helps with catheterization for conditions like bladder incontinence or to collect sterile samples, administers or instructs patients on medication, and instructs patients on how to maintain and promote urinary health. They also provide information to patients' and families' queries and concerns. The risk and complication information that urology nurses provide to patients is thorough and up-to-date.
