The study evaluates how outcome varies among critically ill patients with and without acute kidney injury. Data from the Swedish Intensive care register and other Swedish national registers is used to compare how survival and post discharge renal function differ between critically ill patients with and without acute kidney injury.
Background: Acute kidney injury is common amongst intensive care patients and is associated with extremely high mortality and morbidity in terms of increased risk of developing Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). Patients with CKD are at increased risk of cardiovascular, cerebro-vascular disease and long term increased risk of death. Those patients who progress to ESRD have a 20% mortality risk per year in Sweden. Outcome after acute kidney injury in the Swedish critical care population has never previously been described.
Method: This cohort study uses Swedish national healthcare registers to investigate the epidemiology of acute kidney injury. The Swedish Intensive Care Register (SIR) provides the population base, with data extraction between 2005 and 2011. The information obtained is cross-matched by the Swedish board for health and welfare (Social Styrelsen) with other national registries. All data are returned anonymized and individual patients can not be identified in any way. Additionally analysis is performed on a group and not on an individual basis. The key to this data is held by Swedish board for health and welfare. The other national registries include the Swedish Cause of Death Register (Dödsregister), the Swedish renal register (Svensknjurregistret) and the in and out-patients registers (Öppen- slutenvårdsregister) these are used to obtain data on all cause mortality, co-morbidities, Pre and Post ICU CKD and ESRD. Epidemiological methods are used to analyse the data.
We aim to describe outcome in terms of long-term mortality (up to five years) and renal morbidity (incidence of CKD and ESRD) in critically ill patients with and without de novo AKI in Sweden.

Acute kidney injury (AKI) in pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) children may be associated with long-term chronic kidney disease or hypertension.
Abrupt reduction in kidney function defined as an absolute increase in serum CREATININE of more than or equal to 0.3. mg/dl, a percentage increase in serum creatinine of more than or equal to 50%, or a reduction in urine output. Acute kidney injury encompasses the entire spectrum of the syndrome including acute kidney failure; ACUTE KIDNEY TUBULAR NECROSIS; and other less severe conditions.
Acute kidney failure resulting from destruction of EPITHELIAL CELLS of the KIDNEY TUBULES. It is commonly attributed to exposure to toxic agents or renal ISCHEMIA following severe TRAUMA.
A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.
A rare but serious transfusion-related reaction in which fluid builds up in the lungs unrelated to excessively high infusion rate and/or volume (TRANSFUSION-ASSOCIATED CIRCULATORY OVERLOAD). Signs of Transfusion-Related Acute Lung Injury include pulmonary secretions; hypotension; fever; DYSPNEA; TACHYPNEA; TACHYCARDIA; and CYANOSIS.
A complication of kidney diseases characterized by cell death involving KIDNEY PAPILLA in the KIDNEY MEDULLA. Damages to this area may hinder the kidney to concentrate urine resulting in POLYURIA. Sloughed off necrotic tissue may block KIDNEY PELVIS or URETER. Necrosis of multiple renal papillae can lead to KIDNEY FAILURE.
