Renal / CRRT
- CVVHDF using citrate (mostly), heparin (if can’t use citrate) or nothing (rarely)
- There are prescription stickers that are stuck on the ICU observation chart for each method of anticoagulation.
- Renal unit available for consult – usually not needed, but utilise if looks like needing dialysis > 1 week. This will expedite gaining a dialysis chair if patient otherwise able to leave ICU. Think about permcath if looking like long term HD (> ~ 4 weeks)
