Continuous Renal Replacement Therapies (CRRT)

CRRT procedure is a blood purification process used for the patients with acute kidney injury, a sepsis-like syndrome, multi-organ failure, particularly patients who are hemodynamically unstable to support kidney function.
During the CRRT dialysis therapy, the patient’s blood passes through blood purification machine, filter and blood warmer. This blood purification therapy is a slow and continuous process which can run continuously 24 hours a day to remove fluid and uremic toxins from the blood and return the blood back to the patient’s body.
This therapy helps patients with unstable heart rates and blood pressure to tolerate hemodialysis better.

Types of CRRT

  • Continuous Venovenous Hemofiltration (CVVH)
  • Continuous Venovenous Hemodialysis (CVVHD)
  • Continuous Venovenous Hemodiafiltration (CVVHDF)
