Quick Reference

Acute kidney injury, also called acute renal failure. The diagnosis is usually based on changes in the serum creatinine concentration or the detection of oliguria, neither of which is ideal as they tend to lag behind the phase of acute injury. New biomarkers of AKI are being sought as a top research priority.
