Course Details


Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) is a common condition affecting hospitalized patients, particularly among the critically ill. Injury to the renal system can result in electrolyte derangements, increased risk of stroke, long-term renal failure, or death. The monitoring of serum creatinine, estimated glomerular filtration rate, and urine output is essential in the management of AKI. Prompt treatment of AKI is essential in preventing life threatening complications.
