Regular Dialysis

Difference between CRRT and regular dialysis

Imagine removing some fluid from a tank of 1000 litres in 2 hours. It has to be removed at a rate of 500 litres per hour in order to do the same. On the other hand, it can be gently removed over 24 hours by removing 50 litres per hour. CRRT follows the same principle. It is a gentle form of dialysis where the fluid is removed over 24 hours, more like the original organ, kidney.
