Early intervention can improve outcomes in acute kidney injury

22 Jun 2015Registered users

AKI is potentially reversible so improvements in its recognition and early interventions could have a major impact on patient outcomes. Potential clues in the history for AKI include reduced fluid intake and/or increased fluid losses, urinary tract symptoms and recent drug ingestion.
