Hypervolemia in the ICU: A Novel Approach to Fluid Management
Presented at the 49th Critical Care Congress, this session is sponsored by CHF Solutions, Inc.
Hypervolemia is a common complication in the ICU and is associated with increased length of stay and mortality. Ultrafiltration with Aquadex FlexFlow® allows for timely treatment and can be prescribed by any physician trained in extracorporeal therapy. Ultrafiltration has been shown to reduce certain post-operative complications and improve cardiac performance.
