Dialysis Dilemma (Episode #2024)

KQED World: Tue, Aug 9, 2011 -- 6:00 AM

Dialysis is a life-sustaining treatment for nearly half a million Americans with kidney disease. It's also big business, with more than 4000 privately owned dialysis centers dotting strip malls throughout the nation. Recently revised guidelines issued by the Renal Physicians Association call into question the wisdom of dialysis for elderly kidney patients who also suffer from other maladies, such as heart disease or cancer. The guidelines suggest frank discussions between doctors and patients and families - discussions that in many ways mirror the broader debate over the future of healthcare in America. Host: Lark McCarthy. Guests: Professor Robert M Veatch, Medical Ethicist at the Kennedy School of Ethics at Georgetown University and Andrew Howard, MD, clinical nephrologist and past president of the National Kidney Foundation
