Continuous renal replacement therapy requires a significant commitment to ongoing education and training. Machines for CRRT are automated for the priming and preparation sequence; however, they can be challenging for new learners to master and operate safely. Fluid balance and anticoagulation regimens can be a source of mistakes without adequate education. It is also important to recognize that manufacturers’ operating manuals for machines are not always suitably prepared for the clinical environment, and idiosyncrasies of clinical patient care when using a machine need to be developed and taught locally.
