Comparison of Dialysis Strategies in Critically Ill Patients With Acute Renal Failure

2014-07-24 14:25:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The goal of the present study is the comparison of different dialysis strategies in critically ill patients with acute renal failure on the intensive care unit. Patients are treated with either continuous dialysis or hemofiltration. Outcome measures are death, restitution of renal function, days on ICU, hemodynamic stability, dialysis efficiency.

Description

The goal of the present study is the comparison of different renal replacement strategies in critically ill patients with acute renal failure on the intensive care unit. In a prospectively randomized clinical study patients are treated with either continuous dialysis (SLED) or continuous hemofiltration (CVVHD). 200 patients should be included in the study (n=100 each). The primary outcome is death at ICU, secondary outcome measures are restitution of renal function, days on ICU, hemodynamic stability, dialysis efficiency.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the BLOOD by the kidneys based on dialysis and including hemodialysis, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, and HEMODIAFILTRATION.

Procedures which temporarily or permanently remedy insufficient cleansing of body fluids by the kidneys.

Therapeutic replacement or supplementation of defective or missing enzymes to alleviate the effects of the enzyme deficiency (e.g., GLUCOSYLCERAMIDASE replacement for GAUCHER DISEASE).

Artificially produced membranes, such as semipermeable membranes used in artificial kidney dialysis (RENAL DIALYSIS), monomolecular and bimolecular membranes used as models to simulate biological CELL MEMBRANES. These membranes are also used in the process of GUIDED TISSUE REGENERATION.

Portable peritoneal dialysis using the continuous (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) presence of peritoneal dialysis solution in the peritoneal cavity except for periods of drainage and instillation of fresh solution.

Dialysis
In medicine, dialysis is a process for removing waste and excess water from the blood, and is primarily used to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Dialysis may be used for those with an acute disturba...
