An increasing body of evidence indicates therapy dose and intensity influence the outcome of dialyzed ARF patients. However, a number of unanswered questions remain on this issue. These questions need to be addressed in future prospective, controlled trials that assess the effect of dose and intensity on outcome both within and between the various ARF renal replacement therapies, with appropriate and clinically relevant control arms. Such investigations should provide guidelines ultimately for the dialytic management of critically ill patients with ARF.
