Abstract

Despite the numerous advantages of continuous arteriovenous hemofiltration (CAVH), a major disadvantage that has restricted worldwide adoption of the method is the problem of manual control of the large fluid volumes of 12 to 20 L daily necessary to control azotemia. An exact manual balance is a time-consuming and often grossly inaccurate procedure (1) .
