Indications for renal replacement therapy (RRT) fall into two broad categories, so-called “renal” (i.e., to specifically address the consequences of renal failure) and “nonrenal” (without necessitating renal failure). Although the distinction is not always precise, it is a reasonably easy way to categorize indications for RRT.
