Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication in critically ill patients and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. AKI is often multifactorial, asymptomatic and difficult to predict. This webinar provides a review of the etiologies of AKI and a systematic approach toward its diagnosis and management with emphasis on fluid volume assessment and management. The use of point-of-care (POC) biomarkers have provided additional tools to detect patients at high risk of AKI and improve their outcomes. We will review protocols that integrate the use of POC biomarkers into a multidisciplinary clinical response team to potentially reduce AKI development, severity and the number of patients who need dialysis.

Whether in the ICU or other hospital wards, AKI represents a complex disorder that requires frequent monitoring and early detection to achieve optimal outcomes. There are many testing modalities available for the clinician to aid in AKI clinical decision making and management. These involve following trends in blood creatinine, plasma volume status, and electrolytes including ionized magnesium. This webinar will also investigate point-of-care testing options available to clinicians that care for these patients.
