More than 50% of patients develop acute kidney injury (AKI) in the ICU during critical illness. Mortality among patients with AKI and multiorgan failure in the ICU is reported to exceed 50%. Understanding physiologic interactions between the kidney and other organs, including the heart and lungs, is of utmost importance to streamline management strategies during AKI. Approximately 2% to 30% of AKI survivors in the ICU progress to end-stage renal disease. Patients who recover renal function during their ICU stay also have a significant risk of developing progressive renal dysfunction. This half-day course will review these complex interactions and explore appropriate and timely diagnostic tools and adjusting therapeutic interventions to improve outcomes in patients with AKI.
