IHD vs CRRT: CRRT is a continuous form of hemodialysis used in critically ill patients who have kidney failure and unstable blood pressure. What most people mean when they use the term "hemodialysis" is intermittent hemodialysis. About 90% of dialysis patients in the U.S. get their blood cleansed and excess fluids removed by HD. Most get their treatment 3x per week and each session lasts 3-4 hrs.
