For the first time, infants with acute kidney injury (AKI) and fluid overload (FO) can be treated with a dialysis system designed specifically for them.([FOOTNOTE=Ronco C, Garzotto F, Ricci Z. CA.R.PE.DI.E.M. (Cardio-Renal Pediatric Dialysis Emergency Machine): evolution of continuous renal replacement therapies in infants. A personal journey. Pediatr Nephrol. 2012;27(8):1203–1211.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
The first of its kind, the Carpediem™ system offers a dedicated extracorporeal CRRT to low weight patients and responds to the needs of the most fragile patient.
Neonatal acute kidney injury (AKI) and fluid overload are under-recognized conditions which often lead to morbidity and mortality.([FOOTNOTE=Nada A, Bonachea EM, Askenazi DJ. Acute kidney injury in the fetus and neonate. Sem Fetal Neonatal Med. 2017;22(2):90-97.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
For the first time, there is no need to adapt adult machines and weigh the complexities that have traditionally plagued pCRRT treatments.([FOOTNOTE=Ronco C, Garzotto F, Brendolan A, et al. Continuous renal replacement therapy in neonates and small infants: development and first-in-human use of a miniaturised machine (CARPEDIEM). Lancet. 2014;383:1807–1813.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
