Intensity of Continuous Renal-Replacement Therapy in Critically Ill Patients

.   .   

This multicenter, randomized trial compared the effect of CRRT, delivered at two different levels of intensity (40 ml/kg vs 25 ml/kg), on 90-day mortality among critically ill patients with acute kidney injury. Treatment with higher-intensity continuous renal-replacement therapy did not reduce mortality at 90 days.
