Kidney transplantation: a therapy option.


The growing number of patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) choosing kidney transplantation as a therapy option has increased critical care nurses' exposure to this patient population. Critical care nurses have a crucial involvement when caring for the patient in the postoperative period or when serious complications develop. A knowledge base of immunosuppressive therapy and the body's response to it is helpful in assessing and identifying rejection, infection, and technical complications.
