Publication Highlights Use of Ultrafiltration for Fluid Management in COVID-19 Patients
“Fluid stewardship is likely to help reduce potential complications in critically ill patients with COVID-19,” said Amir Kazory, MD, FASN, FACC, a professor at the
Highlights of ultrafiltration identified in the publication include:
- Isolated ultrafiltration is an optimal strategy that primarily focuses on fluid extraction and optimization of volume status;
- Portable ultrafiltration devices could prove particularly helpful because the extremely small extracorporeal volume (i.e. 35 ml) will help avoid potentially adverse hemodynamic impact in critically ill COVID-19 patients, and the predictability of the fluid extraction will make it more likely to achieve the precise goal for the de-escalation process; and
- Rapid device deployment capability and ease of use of dedicated ultrafiltration machines is helpful with the high number of infected patients and limited resources
“We are pleased that this publication will generate awareness of ultrafiltration as a solution in the treatment paradigm for critically ill COVID-19 patients,” said
