Hemofilter obstruction with intravenous lipid administration

A critically ill patient requiring continuous venovenous hemofiltration therapy received parenteral nutrition through the same commonly used intravascular device” Boullata et al (2019).

Abstract:

A critically ill patient requiring continuous venovenous hemofiltration therapy received parenteral nutrition through the same commonly used intravascular device. The inclusion of injectable lipid emulsion had an adverse effect on hemofilter function. This was successfully managed first by using lipid-free parenteral nutrition and then by administering the total nutrient admixture via a separate central venous access device.
