To evaluate the safety and efficiency of citrate anticoagulant-based continuous blood purification in patients at high risk of bleeding.
Methods: One hundred and fifty-two patients at high risk of bleeding were divided into local citrate group (group A, n=68) and heparin group (group B, n=84). Clotting function, change of pH, ionized sodium, bicarbonate ion, ionized calcium, activated clotting time (ACT) and complications were monitored before and during treatment.
