ICU Dialysis

Continuous renal replacement therapy is a special type of dialysis that we do for unstable patients in the ICU whose bodies cannot tolerate regular dialysis. Instead of doing it over four hours, CRRT is done 24 hours a day to slowly and continuously clean out the waste products and fluid from the patient.

Why do ICU patients need dialysis?

It is the preferred type of dialysis treatment for these critically ill patients, because it allows physicians to give patients whatever fluids, nutrition, antibiotics or other medications they need without worrying about the accumulation of waste products and fluid from the failing kidneys.
