Abnormal Renal Function

Treatment

  • Prompt treatment of some causes of azotemia can result in restoration of kidney function; delayed treatment may result in permanent loss of renal function.[ipfs.io]
  • Each chapter begins with normal function and pathophysiology and quickly moves to clinical conditions and treatment. Numerous illustrations, tables, charts, and graphs make complex subjects understandable. Up-to-date references are also included.[books.google.ro]
  • Pathophysiology and Rationale for Treatment 197 Chapter 10 The Physiology of Anesthesia and Pain 213 Chapter 11 Sepsis and the Syndrome of Multiple Organ Failure 227 Chapter 12 Application of Cellular and Molecular Biology in Modern Surgical Practice[books.google.ro]
  • Treatment The goal of treatment for prerenal azotemia is to restore normal blood flow to the kidneys. Time is of the essence in this treatment, as permanent kidney damage could result from the loss of blood if it continues for too long.[kidneypedia.net]

Prognosis

  • […] nitrogen (bun) and creatinine values. urine specific gravity is usually normal. postrenal azotemia, however, can progress to intrinsic renal disease due to increased pressure in the urinary system or due to a sustained decrease in renal blood flow. the prognosis[proprofs.com]

  • Otherwise, predicting prognosis of ARF/AKI from a heterogenous group of patients with renal dysfunction would be problematic.[academic.oup.com]
  • Postrenal ARF Prognosis The rate of recovery is largely determined by the duration and severity of obstructive disease. In general, the extent of recovery is determined within 7 to 14 days after the obstruction has been removed.[healthcommunities.com]
  • Although another commonly used test, urine microscopy, can be useful in AKI for both diagnosis ( 4 ) and prognosis ( 5 ), it is operator dependent and requires expertise.[cjasn.asnjournals.org]

  • Etiology For each classification of azotemia, there are unique etiologies. Pre-renal azotemia manifests from some insult/injury source before the kidney.[statpearls.com]
  • General guidelines for differentiating the etiology of acute kidney injury (ie, prerenal vs renal) using laboratory studies. Figure 3.[jaoa.org]

Epidemiology

  • In this article we highlight the epidemiology, general causes, and evaluation of acute renal failure in adults.[nejm.org]
  • The RIFLE criteria, however, has allowed for a more systematic approach which is useful in epidemiological and research studies [ 3 ].[academic.oup.com]
  • Epidemiology Interestingly, many aspects of the natural history of azotemia remain unclear to this day.[statpearls.com]
  • (Renal atheroemboli) Introduction Clinical definition acute reduction in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) recall that GFR represents the sum of the filtration rates of nephrons therefore, GFR reflects functioning renal mass Epidemiology risk factors hypertension[medbullets.com]
  • The RIFLE and AKIN definitions have been shown by several epidemiological studies to be useful in predicting mortality risk in AKI. These definitions do not, however, distinguish between prerenal, postrenal, or intrarenal causes of injury.[nature.com]
