  Purpose
  1. Sustained low efficiency daily hemodiafiltration(SLEDD-f) is a kind of renal replacement therapy with high-flux dialyser membrane (helixone).
  2. The pore size of helixone is larger than most antibiotics, and vancomycin is supposed to be removed during dialysis.
  3. Our study wants to find the amount of vancomycin removed during SLEDD-f, and try to find the most appropriate dose regimen for this kind of patients.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The amount of vancomycin removed during one course of SLEDD-f [ Time Frame: 8 hr (during one course of SLEDD-f) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The pharmacokinetics and dosing regimen of vancomycin in patients on SLEDD-f. [ Time Frame: 26 hr ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
SLEDD-f, vanco
Surgical ICU patients who is on slow low efficiency daily hemodiafiltration (SLEDD-f) and requires vancomycin therapy
Device: sustained low efficiency daily hemodiafiltration (SLEDD-f)
vancomycin 15mg/kg IV infusion on day 1 from 6PM to 8PM. Start SLEDD-f on day 2 from 9AM to 5PM.

Detailed Description:

Vancomycin is the most important antibiotic in the treatment of resistant G(+) bacteria infections. Close monitor of serum level is important to ensure its safety and effectiveness. So far there is not enough data to support the optimal dose regimen of vancomycin in patients on SLEDD-f. In this study, we draw blood levels between 2 doses of vancomycin to determine the pharmacokinetic parameters of vancomycin and fraction removed by SLEDD-f so as to determine the most appropriate dose regimen.
