 52% of AKI referred cases either HUS or “primary renal disease”
 Most patients requiring RRT: “primary renal disease”

Characteristics, patterns

AKI due to other causes >>> primary renal disease

Developing countries:
More importance of primary renal disease, Malaria, HUS
 However, now secondary causes emerging


“TOP HITS” around room:
“ATN”
 “Hypovolemia”
 Sepsis
 Nephrotoxic medication – almost always significant when looked at!!
 Heme-Onc
 Cardiac surgery


Majority have multiple organ dysfunction
Characteristics, patterns
Characteristics, patterns
AKI OCCURS EARLY
Distribution of the day of admission that subjects reached pRIFLEmax
(n=123) and pRIFLE F stratum (n=31).
Confirmed in several other larger epidemiologic cohort studies
Outcome associations

In repeated studies last 5 years:

AKI independently associated with





PICU mortality
Length of stay
Duration of mechanical ventilation
Graded response: Stage 1 worse than 2 worse than 3
A few studies: associated with higher costs
Difficult to REALLY know if independent of illness severity
Importance of all these studies
Paradigm changed
PAST


Only severe AKI, requiring
RRT is of serious significance.
AKI is a marker of disease
severity.
CURRENT




People die WITH AKI, not
BECAUSE of AKI.
AKI is a spectrum of disease:
worse AKI = more significance
AKI is more likely and worse,
with increasing illness severity.
AKI itself may be an
independent contributor to
poor outcome.
