Abstract Intermittent hemodialysis (IHD) is a renal replacement modality that is defined by short, efficient hemodialysis sessions with the goal of removing endogenous or exogenous toxins from the bloodstream. Common indications for IHD include drug or toxin ingestion, acute or acute-on-chronic kidney injury, and chronic kidney disease (CKD). Sessions can be performed once, as is commonwith toxin ingestion, or can be repeated daily or every other day for several days or longer, as is often done for acute kidney injury (AKI). Sessions can be planned 2 or 3 times per week for the duration of the patient’s life, as may be selected for CKD. Sessions are traditionally 1 to 6 hours in length, but can be longer depending on stability of the patient and efficiency of the session. IHD is designed as a more efficient modality than continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT), meaning that IHD sessions remove small dialyzable molecules (including blood urea nitrogen [BUN], creatinine, phosphorus, electrolytes, and certain drugs and toxins) from the bloodstream more rapidly than CRRT. Between treatments (the interdialysis period), these dialyzable molecules may again increase in the bloodstream. IHD is commonly performed in university or private practice specialty referral centers, and cases are most often overseen by Diplomates of the Colleges of Veterinary Internal Medicine or Emergency and Critical Care.
