OBJECTIVE: To investigate the safety and effectiveness of the application of high-volume hemofiltration (HVHF) in children with sepsis combined with acute kidney injury.
PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 76 child patients were enrolled and randomly divided equally (n=38) into control and the observation groups respectively. The control group received conventional volume hemofiltration (the ultrafiltration rate of 35-50 ml/kg/h), and the observation group received HVHF (50-100 ml/kg/h).
RESULTS: The serum Interleukin-6 (IL-6), Tumor Necrosis Factor-a (TNF-α) and creatinine levels were significantly lower in the observation group than the control group at 6 h, 12 h, 24 h and 48 h of hemofiltration (p<0.05). The efficacy rate of treatment was improved. The mortality rate and incidence rate of complications were decreased, and the treatment course was significantly shortened (p<0.05).
CONCLUSIONS: The application of HVHF in children with sepsis combined with acute kidney injury has a better safety and effectiveness.Free PDF Download
