Continuous Veno-Veno Hemofilatration Dialysis (CVVHD)

Continuous veno-venous hemofiltration (CVVH) was designed as a renal replacement therapy for patients with acute renal failure. It is often chosen over intermittent hemodialysis when blood pressure instability is a problem, and CVVH is generally more efficient than peritoneal dialysis.

In some intensive care units the use of CVVH is increasing, as appreciation builds for its utility in the management of non-oliguric patients, in particular those with multiple organ dysfunction or failure, when their treatment includes very large amounts of intravenous fluids.
