I1 – Renal Replacement Therapy Choices: What are the links to long term outcomes?
Advancements in Acute Kidney Injury drive us to seek a deeper understanding of the choices we make
and their impact on long-term outcomes. Delve into discussions on renal replacement therapy
nomenclature, the intricacies of membrane technology and the critical examination of how modality
choice may impact long-term renal recovery. Join us as we decipher these complexities and uncover the
links that shape the future of Critical Care Nephrology.
Moderator: Dr. Ron Wald
Nomenclature: What’s in a name? Aren’t they all the same? – Dr. Thiago Reis
Membranes: What is the difference? What difference do they make? – Dr. Manish Kaushik
Modality and Renal Recovery: Is there a link? – Dr. Ron Wald

I2 – Introducing Quelimmune: New Approved Therapy for Pediatric AKI due to Sepsis
Despite advancements in kidney replacement therapy, little improvement in morbidity and mortality rates of acute kidney injury (AKI) or sepsis-associated AKI (SA-AKI) have occurred over the past few decades. Mortality rates in children with AKI and multi-organ failure requiring continuous kidney replacement therapy (CKRT) continues to remain at ~50%. Additionally, children who survive an AKI episode are at increased risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD). This program will explore the background and clinical data of the pediatric selective cytopheretic device which recently received FDA approval for a Humanitarian Device Exemption in pediatric AKI due to sepsis.
