Brian C Bridges , David J Askenazi , Jessimene Smith , Stuart L Goldstein
ABSTRACT
Renal replacement therapy (RRT) is used in a wide variety of pediatric populations. In this article, we will review the advantages and disadvantages of the different RRT modalities and the technical aspects of providing pediatric RRT. In addition, we will review the use of RRT with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, the use of continuous RRT in the critically ill child with acute kidney injury and fluid overload, and the use of RRT for the removal of toxins and treatment of inborn errors of metabolism.
