Acute Kidney Injury(AKI)

Acute Kidney Injury is the sudden failure of kidney or kidney damage that happens in few days or weeks. AKI causes a build-up of waste products in your blood and makes it hard for kidneys to keep the right balance of fluid in body. Most cases of AKI are caused by reduced blood flow to the kidneys, usually in the person who is already unwell with another health condition. The most common cause is dehydration and sepsis combined with nephrotoxic drugs, especially following surgery or contrast agents. The causes of acute kidney injury are commonly categorized into pre renal injury, intrinsic, and post renal injury. Many advances have been made in Phenotyping for AKI.
