How long to run a patient with one set up

I work in acute setting and we often fun patients in critical condition for 24 hours straight. Sometimes longer. Should we be changing out the bloodlines and dialyzer sometime during this time? And should we test machine again as well?

It sounds like you are doing CRRT of some sort. Depending on the machines you are using, the lines may be left on for several days - or until they clot off. When I did these with the Prisma machines we changed them every 2nd day, but that was several years ago. Talk to the machine manufacturer or look on the sheet that comes with the blood lines - it should have some info there.
