What CRRT University™ participants are saying about their experience

  • “I thought the training provided a 'realistic' view.”
  • “The ONE most important thing learned was troubleshooting CRRT alarms, evidence to initiate procedure earlier in renal failure patients, pre-dilution vs post-dilution fluids, and alarm management.”
  • “I learned many tips about trouble shooting the machine.”
  • “I now know how to better address alarms. Sometimes you simply don’t have a CRRT orientation experience that allows you to do much "troubleshooting" so the course allowed me to practice a lot of that, for example, the dialysate weight alarm troubleshooting.”
  • “The ONE most important thing learned was developing a yearly competency surrounding CRRT for all PICU nurses.”
