Risks and Responsibilities
Renal replacement therapy, as with any medical therapy is not without risks. The decision of which therapy and medical device to use should be made by the physician, based on previous experience and on the individual facts and circumstances of the patient.
There is no literature demonstrating that one therapy is clinically better than the other.
The use of anticoagulation is at the discretion of the prescribing physician.
