Treatment with Continuous Renal Replacement

Author(s): Sophia Smith*

For critically sick patients with acute kidney damage, continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) is frequently utilised to provide renal support, especially for patients who are hemodynamically unstable. Continuous venovenous hemofiltration, which primarily uses convective solute clearance, continuous venovenous hemodialysis, which primarily uses diffusive solute clearance, and continuous venovenous hemodiafiltration, which combines both dialysis and hemofiltration, are just a few of the techniques that can be used.

The current paper discusses the indications for beginning renal replacement therapy, as well as dose and technical elements in the administration of CRRT, and compares CRRT with alternative modalities of renal support.
