Objective: Continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) is frequently used for critically ill patients with acute renal failure. However, information on drug dosing in CRRT is limited; therefore, electronic resources of information are generally used. The aim of this study is to compare the dosing recommendations provided by five different commonly used electronic drug information resources regarding dose adjustments for the antimicrobial drugs used in CRRT.
