In summary, in patients with acute DDS overdose when methaemoglobinemia does not respond to initial management, CVVH provides a safe alternative management option by increasing the elimination of DDS and its principal metabolite.
A specific consideration should be done with respect to three studies comparing conservative treatment versus CVVH or high volume haemofiltration (58,62), or in patients without AKI (8) respectively.
Comparison of clinical efficacy between continuous veno-venous hemofiltration (CVVH) and CVVH combined with hemoperfusion for the treatment of multiple organ dysfunction syndrome].

With the improved CO and stroke volume (SV), systolic MAP was significantly higher in animals receiving CVVH versus the peritonitis group (Figure 1).
