The article discusses a research study regarding the impact of increasing the dialysis dose in critically ill patients with acute renal failure. The survival rates were examined by increasing the dialysis dose using continuous venovenous hemodiafiltration (CVVHDF), and continuous venovenous hemofiltration (CVVH) alone. It was found that in critically ill patients with acute renal failure, CVVHDF increased survival more than did CVVH alone.
