This highly practical, clear and concise illustrated manual will be aimed at all intensive care physicians and nurses involved in the care of critically ill patients with acute renal failure who require hemofiltration therapy. This is a well-established and growing method of renal replacement. As a consequence, new information on techniques, their application and the results from multicentre trials are now available. This unique book, using a step-by-step approach, will take the reader through the range of systems available and use case histories to illustrate their clinical applications. A unique chapter on trouble shooting will also be included. This will contain diagrams of problems that may arise with hemofiltration systems and give advice on ways of dealing with them promptly and effectively.
