Acute kidney injury dashboards
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a sudden reduction in kidney function (usually within a timeframe ranging from hours to days) manifesting clinically as a reversible acute increase of nitrogen waste products (serum urea and creatinine levels). In the past, AKI was referred to as acute renal/kidney failure. AKI is a common condition associated with hospitalisation and is especially common among critically ill patients (ISN 2019).
