Abstract

Continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) has been used in critically ill children for more than 20 years in the world, but in Korea, although it is becoming the preferred method of acute therapy in pediatric intensive care units, there has been a few experiences and no consensus of CRRT up to now. This review describes the basic technique of CRRT, highlights the between the adult and pediatric prescription, and elaborates on the main controversies in the application of CRRT in children.
