abstract

  • Despite more frequent RRT and the use of CRRT, the mortality of ARF in critically ill surgical patients remains high because of nonrenal organ dysfunction. Considering that ARF-related mortality was decreased by intermittent HD, and that intermittent RRT is less costly, patients who need RRT should be treated preferentially with HD.
