Acute Kidney Injury

Acute renal failure is characterized by a sudden episode of kidney failure caused by the abrupt decrease in the Glomerular Filtration Rate and a disturbance in the electrolyte balance in the body. Pre-renal kidney injury is a most common form of kidney injury which results to renal hypoperfusion. Nephrotoxic drugs like diuretics, beta blockers also lead to prerenal kidney injury. The intrinsic causes of kidney injury may include glomerulo and tubular nephritis. Post renal is rare and accounts to 5% of AKI. Urinalysis and Radiography can be used as detection methods. To date there is no specific therapy established for AKI due to nephrotoxicity, Management of these disorders focuses on the elimination of causative toxins namely nephrotoxins and initiation of renal replacement therapy when indicated.
