Amio in HD patients

Q: Amiodarone is dialyzable and may not be effective if a patient is on continuous renal replacement therapy  (CRRT)? (select one)

A) True
B) False

Answer: B

The objective of the above question is to clear the statements found at few places that Amiodarone is dialyzable. But it is only up to 5% and has barely any clinical significance. This is true for all forms of dialysis including CRRT, intermittent hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis.
