Summary of "Optimizing continuous renal replacement therapy in the ICU: a team strategy."

The consideration of acute kidney injury, its incidence and its impact on the outcome of patients has grown continuously in recent years, leading to an increase in the use of renal replacement therapy (RRT) techniques. However, the successful conduct of RRT depends on the effectiveness of the entire team, doctors and nurses. It is therefore important to know the essential elements to be implemented in the ICU to ensure optimal RRT.

The prototypical uricosuric agent. It inhibits the renal excretion of organic anions and reduces tubular reabsorption of urate. Probenecid has also been used to treat patients with renal impairment, and, because it reduces the renal tubular excretion of other drugs, has been used as an adjunct to antibacterial therapy.
