Veno-venous CRRT rely on the use of a temporary double lumen catheter, typically inserted into one of the central veins (femoral, subclavian or jugular). Ideal catheter type, size and site of insertion are determined by local hospital policies, however success can be achieved with many variations and no controlled data are available to reflect ‘best’ practise. Catheters should be easy to insert and remove or be guide wire exchanged, allow a wide range of blood flows, minimize recirculation phenomena, and reduce decubitus and infection episodes.
