BACKGROUND Citrate anticoagulation is gaining popularity in renal replacement therapies (RRT) for critically ill patients. In order to study whether citrate accumulates in septic shock patients, we determined citrate in plasma and dialysate during continuous venovenous haemodiafiltration (CVVHDF). METHODS An automated routine determination of citrate was(More)
Anticoagulation during renal replacement therapy remains an important challenge for burn patients due to their high risk of bleeding. In this study we compared the efficacy and safety of citrate anticoagulation to heparin anticoagulation for hemodiafiltration (HDF) in severe burn patients, focusing on metabolic tolerance and handling of citrate.(More)
BACKGROUND The heparin requirement for coupled plasma filtration adsorption (CPFA) is usually high. Heparin administration often cannot be adherent to prescription, leading to a premature clotting of circuit and an insufficient volume of treated plasma. Regional citrate anticoagulation (RCA) could be an attractive alternative; however, no data are available(More)
