Continuous Veno-Venous Hemofiltration (CVVH) for Hemodynamic Stabilization by Blood Cooling in Septic Shock
Despite all the endeavors of intensive-care medicine, septic shock is still a clinical picture with a high lethality. When multiple organ failure is present in addition, the survival rate is at best 10% to 20%. Here, acute renal failure is a feared complication in which the necessary detoxication and dehydration measures can contribute to further destabilization of the disease course. We therefore investigated the influence of continous veno-venous hemofiltration (CVVH) in patients in septic shock.
