CRRT protocols

Interested in what other institutions are doing with CRRT using Primasate 4/2.5, 2/0, or 0/3.5 and Phoxilium 4/2.5.

Do you use ACD? Do you make a separate infusion of calcium chloride? Or, do you add calcium chloride to the bags? Are calcium gluconate bags used intermittently sufficient to maintain calcium levels?

Our IV room gets overloaded with having to make bags with calcium chloride which end up not being used and lots of waste.

I have attached our order set for initiation of CRRT.
