Researchers at MPEC have developed models to project shortages in continuous kidney replacement therapy (CKRT) for critically ill patients during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. The models use projections from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, the Harvard Global Health Institute, and published literature to project nationwide and statewide CKRT demand, capacity, and shortages.

A more detailed discussion of the models can be found in the full article (Reddy et al., AJKD 2020).
