A Novel Case of Continuous Electronic Urine Output Monitoring for De-escalation of Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy in Cardiac Intensive Care

Department of Cardiology, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, Tel Aviv, affiliated with the Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel


Among patients admitted with acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF), deterioration of renal function with resulting acute kidney injury (AKI) is reported in up to 70% of patients with cardiogenic shock. Twenty percent of heart failure patients with AKI progress to dialysis (AKI-D). Optimal timing for initiation of renal replacement therapies (RRT) has been researched; however, minimal studies discuss guidelines for weaning from RRT [1]. Electronic monitoring of urine output (UO) may serve as a tool to aid in withdrawal from RRT. We present a case of ADHF with severe AKI requiring continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) where real-time electronic monitoring of UO was implemented for the first time to guide de-escalation therapy from CRRT until successful withdrawal.
