The article presents a comparison of continuous venovenous hemodiafiltration (CVVHDF) and intermittent hemodialysis (IHD) for improving survival in acute renal failure patients. The CVVHDF method did not cause reduction in the clinical outcomes including number of days on dialysis and mortality at 90 days. The only difference in CVVHDF and IHD was that CVVHDF prompted more hypothermia events. The results showed no difference between CVVHDF and IHD.
