In a prospective, non-interventional, monocentric observational study the pharmacokinetic properties of selected antiinfective drugs during sustained low-efficiency dialysis (SLED) will be analyzed. Plasma specimens will be quantified using high Performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Primary endpoint: Plasma levels of antiinfectives during SLED Secondary endpoints:

- 28-day-mortality

- length of stay at the intensive care unit (ICU) and in hospital

- clinical and microbiological cure of infections

Inclusion criteria:

- age: > 18 years

- patients under SLED

- antiinfective treatment

exclusion criteria:

- missing informed consent
