abstract

  • Hypothermia is an independent risk factor for mortality in trauma patients. We describe the use of continuous venovenous haemodialysis (CVVHD) as a rewarming method in a hypothermic, multiply injured patient. CVVHD achieved rapid rewarming and holds advantages over established rewarming methods in the trauma setting.
