Often, too little consideration is given to the fluids used in all forms of continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT). However, errors in fluid prescription, delivery, or creation can be rapidly fatal; in addition, fluid associated expenses can be the overriding cost in continuous renal replacement therapies. While a standard solution is frequently acceptable in most clinical circumstances, specific electrolyte and acid-base disturbances may direct changes in fluid delivery and composition. Decisions regarding fluids, whether dialysate versus replacement, including generation and composition of therapy are discussed in this review.
