An ESICM Talk powered by the NEXT Committee
Acute kidney injury is common in critically ill patients, and 10-15% of ICU patients receive renal replacement therapy (RRT). The timing of therapy initiation is limited by heterogeneity, but until 10-15 years ago there was a trend toward early initiation, as noted by several meta-analyses.
In the past 5 years, several large PRCTs have addressed this topic: ELAIN, AKIKI, IDEAL-ICU, STARRT-AKI, and AKIKI-2.
In this ESICM NEXT educational podcast, we will find out what is the most recent consensus and what are the clinical tools to facilitate the initiation of RRT.
