Course description

Super lecture and discussion around management of the Critical Care Unit patient. 

Common problems of the ICU patient. 
What is the role of the CRRT (Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy). 

In the ever-evolving landscape of healthcare, the role of Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) remains a subject of considerable discussion and, often, contention. As perfusionists and medical professionals navigate the complexities of ICU patient care, the question that looms large is: What is the role of CRRT in the management of critically ill patients?

Our latest webinar video, "Common Problems of the ICU Patient: Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy," aims to provide an in-depth understanding of this crucial topic. The video features expert insights and addresses several key aspects that are vital for both novice and experienced perfusionists. 

Key Takeaways:

1. Understanding CRRT: Get a comprehensive overview of what CRRT entails and its core principles. 
2. Utility in ICU: Delve into the specific scenarios where CRRT proves to be invaluable in ICU settings.
3. Underutilization: Explore why CRRT is not as commonly used as it should be and the myths surrounding its application.
4. ECMO and CRRT: Understand the significance of CRRT in patients who are on Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO).
5. Best Practices: Learn about the protocols and guidelines that govern the effective use of CRRT.
