    Alan interesting blog. Some years ago our network did a study on dialysis units with high versus low mortality. The only significant difference we found at that time was the amount of time the nephrologist spent in the dialysis unit. The work was never published. I think I still have the raw data somewhere in my files.
    I enjoy your blog.

    As per dialysis report of majority acute renal failure is an uncommon occurrence in burns patients, although the mortality of this condition remains high.
