Monitoring and Diagnostics
Renal, Electrolytes & pH

Renal replacement therapies are commonly used in the ICU to remove excess fluid and clear the blood of endogenous and exogenous toxins. This resource explains the physics & physiology of dialysis, discussing the key concepts (dialysis = diffusion, hemofiltration/ultrafiltration = convection) and the components of the dialysis circuit (pumps, dialyzer, dialysis solution, replacement fluid, etc). It also reviews all the confusing modes of dialysis: IHD, SLED, and CRRT including SCUF, CVVHF, CVVHD, and CVVHDF.
