What you'll learn

The prevalence of chronic kidney failure (CKD) during the last decades has been increased rapidly. The management of ‘critically ill CRF patients’ is a clinical challenge for nephrologists and intensivists. Epidemiological studies have shown preexisting renal dysfunction to be a significant cause for the increase in the risk of death, particularly for those patients admitted in the ICU. The development of acute kidney injury in CKD patients during acute illness is quite common (acute-on-chronic (AoC) kidney disease) and further worsens the patient more »»

During the past decades, nephrologists and intensivists have classified acute and chronic renal dysfunction as two separate clinical syndromes. Common pathophysiological mechanisms leading to kidney damage might result in the development of AKI and worsening of CKD in the patients, thus causing end-stage kidney disease and acting as major risk factors for non-renal acute or chronic organ dysfunction. Considering the high prevalence and mortality rate of CKD patients in the ICU, the incidence of AoC kidney dysfunction in those patients and the rate of progression toward end-stage kidney disease, an integrated multidisciplinary effort should be advocated.
