Blood purification in critical care can perform two main functions: as an artificial support for failing organs and as a remover of causative humoral mediators of critical illness.
The potential for treatment of the critically ill using blood purification techniques has been discussed for several decades. However, there has been considerable hesitancy towards the widespread adoption of such methods, given the lack of mortality benefit observed and the need for more randomised controlled studies.
This webinar will offer the audience a pro-con debate on using blood purification in the ICU.
