PIRRT may help you improve resource utilization, patient care, and early patient mobilization programs.

Prolonged Intermittent Renal Replacement Therapy ("PIRRT") is a gentle 6- to 12-hour hybrid renal replacement therapy that may be used as an alternative to renal replacement therapies in the ICU.

A Simple and Practical RRT Option

PIRRT provides a gentle therapy with similar hemodynamic, clearance, and survival outcomes to Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy ("CRRT")1 and Intermittent Hemodialysis Therapy ("IHD"),2 if deemed appropriate by the physician. As patients become more hemodynamically stable, CRRT patients can be transitioned using PIRRT. Additionally, PIRRT can be used in place of conventional IHD or Sustained Low-Efficiency Daily Dialysis ("SLEDD") for patients who cannot tolerate the intensity of a 3-4 hour treatment.

Dosing Guidelines for PIRRT

Leading experts have established PIRRT dosing and antibiotic guidelines.
