Can someone please help me out? I am a final-semester nursing student starting ICU tomorrow - I have a patient on "CVVH", and though I have many fine medical books, a big PDA, and lots of resources, I can't for the life of me decipher the letters. I have to present this patient tomorrow morning. Can someone throw me a bone and tell me what the initials stand for, so I can look up the treatment? Thanks so much, any help would be wonderful.:spin:

Found this via google, I'm gonna guess it has to do with dialysis. Hopefully this will start you in the right direction.
