Approximately 5-6 % of critically ill patients admitted to Intensive care (ICU) develop severe acute kidney injury (AKI) and more than 70% of them receive renal replacement therapy (RRT). The mortality rate for severe AKI has exceeded 50% over the last three decades and it represents an independent risk factor for mortality of critically ill patients. Strategies to improve patient outcome in AKI may include optimization of delivered RRT dose.
