Referral Patterns for Hospital Acquired Acute Kidney Injury and Relevance to Renal Outcomes

2014-08-27 03:12:37 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Few studies analyzed the referral time to nephrologists and its impact on the patient outcome in a large cohort. The investigators described the incidence and determined the outcome with respect to renal function recovery, renal replacement therapy (RRT) requirement and in-hospital mortality of Hospital Acquired Acute Kidney Injury (HA-AKI) without nephrology referral (nrHA-AKI) and late referred HA-AKI patients to nephrologists (lrHA-AKI) compared with early referral patients (erHA-AKI). The patients included were admitted to the tertiary care academic center of Lausanne (Switzerland) between 2004 and 2008, in the medical and surgical services and in the intensive care unit (ICU).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Procedures which temporarily or permanently remedy insufficient cleansing of body fluids by the kidneys.

Therapeutic replacement or supplementation of defective or missing enzymes to alleviate the effects of the enzyme deficiency (e.g., GLUCOSYLCERAMIDASE replacement for GAUCHER DISEASE).

Referral by physicians to testing or treatment facilities in which they have financial interest. The practice is regulated by the Ethics in Patient Referrals Act of 1989.

The prototypical uricosuric agent. It inhibits the renal excretion of organic anions and reduces tubular reabsorption of urate. Probenecid has also been used to treat patients with renal impairment, and, because it reduces the renal tubular excretion of other drugs, has been used as an adjunct to antibacterial therapy.

The use of hormonal agents with estrogen-like activity in postmenopausal or other estrogen-deficient women to alleviate effects of hormone deficiency, such as vasomotor symptoms, DYSPAREUNIA, and progressive development of OSTEOPOROSIS. This may also include the use of progestational agents in combination therapy.
