Sustained low-efficiency dialysis

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Sustained low-efficiency dialysis (SLED) is an increasingly popular form of renal replacement therapy for patients with renal failure in the intensive care unit. Advantages of SLED are efficient clearance of small solutes, good hemodynamic tolerability, flexible treatment schedules, and reduced costs. Studies comparing outcomes of SLED with those of other dialysis modalities are being performed. Copyright © 2007 S. Karger AG.
