Table 4 Comparison of survival on CRRT by median time from hospital admission to CRRT start, time from intensive care unit (ICU) admission to CRRT start, CRRT duration, total ventilation days, ICU days, and hospital length of stay (LOS) (median (inter-quartile range)) within and between study eras, as well as over the 10-year study period
