Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a well-known complication in critically ill patients. Little is known about the timing and the ultrafiltration dose after initial resuscitation. In vivo microscopy of the microcirculation has been suggested as alternative for the assessment of volume status. Previous studies contribute to the understanding that intravascular hypovolemia is reflected by microcirculatory blood flow changes not detected by conventional methods. The aim of our study was to assess microcirculatory blood flow changes during negative fluid balance ultrafiltration in patients with oliguric AKI.
