Management of CRRT in paediatrics
Acute renal failure (ARF) is defined as the cessation of renal function with or without changes in urinary output. The incidence of ARF in paediatric intensive care units is highly variable, ranging from 2% to 8%, and is often associated with severe medical or surgical illness . Whereas patients with intrinsic renal abnormalities as the basis for their renal failure have mortality rates below 10%, patients with secondary ARF have mortality rates higher than 50% .
