  • And so today we're going to switch to a mode called continuous venovenous hemodialysis, which is a very gentle form of dialysis on the kidneys, and what we hope will provide the most stable environment for his neurologic support as well as for his continued renal improvement.

  • A trend toward higher survival was noted in the group receiving hemofiltration, although this trend did not reach statistical significance. 188 Grootendorst et al. 189 showed an improvement of right ventricular ejection fraction and cardiac performance in a swine model of endotoxic shock with high-volume venovenous hemofiltration, presumably by removal of vasoactive mediators responsible for the adverse sequelae.

  • Similarly, in an evaluation of continuous venovenous hemofiltration in endotoxic swine, Bottoms et al. 191 failed to demonstrate any reductions in plasma concentrations of TNF, lactate concentration, or eicosanoids.

  • Methods We randomly assigned critically ill adults with acute kidney injury to continuous renal-replacement therapy in the form of postdilution continuous venovenous hemodiafiltration with an effluent flow of either 40 ml per kilogram of body weight per hour (higher intensity) or 25 ml per kilogram per hour (lower intensity).

  • Of the 1508 enrolled patients, 747 were randomly assigned to higher-intensity therapy, and 761 to lower-intensity therapy with continuous venovenous hemodiafiltration.
