The only form of dialysis I was raised on in the ICU was Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT). I was a CVVH man; I understood how it worked and how to order it. Lately, I’ve been hearing about slow low efficiency dialysis (SLED). Why would I want anything slow and low efficiency? Turns out I had no idea how great SLED could be until I listened to an incredible lecture by Michaela Cartner on the Intensive Care Network. While you are there, check out the other incredible posts and lectures.
