Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) results from the sudden loss of kidney function. When this occurs, waste products start to accumulate in the blood. AKI may be accompanied by metabolic, acid-base & electrolyte disturbances and fluid overload. AKI may affect other organ systems and may require immediate treatment.
The purpose of AKI management: ensuring the fluid balance, removal of waste products, hemodynamic stabilization, correction of electrolyte abnormalities, restoration of acid-base balance, and nutritional support.
Treatment options for AKI include the Aquarius system with total fluid loss management.
