Further study details as provided by Southwest Hospital, China:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Changes in serum cytokine concentrations and clearance [ Time Frame: 96 hours ]
    0, 6, 12 , 24, 48, 96 hours post CRRT

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • 28 and 90 days survival [ Time Frame: 90 days ]

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: December 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
No Intervention: Control group Procedure: Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy
Patients will be randomized to either arm :early HV-crrt(50ml/kg/h) or Control group
Experimental: early HV-crrt Procedure: Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy
Patients will be randomized to either arm :early HV-crrt(50ml/kg/h) or Control group

Detailed Description:
The impact of Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) on the outcomes of patients with sepsis is controversial, and there is no consensus for the timing and dose of CRRT may improve the outcomes. The purpose of this prospective randomized study is to assess the effect of different CRRT intensity (25ml/kg/h or 50ml/kg/h) on the outcomes of burn patients with early phase of sepsis
