Acute kidney injury

Kidney 2

 

Acute kidney injury:

  • Acute kidney injury is a common syndrome, especially in hospitalised patients, and is independently and strongly associated with increased morbidity and mortality
  • Acute kidney injury is diagnosed either by detection of a sudden increase in serum creatinine or with persistent oliguria
  • Chronic kidney disease increases the risk of acute kidney injury, and an episode of acute kidney injury in turn increases the likelihood of subsequent development of chronic kidney disease, highlighting the need for ongoing surveillance
  • General practice is in a unique position to identify people at increased of acute kidney injury and address potentially modifiable exposures to prevent the occurance of acute kidney injury
