Decoding the AKI to CKD Transition

Great article on decoding the AKI to CKD transition. Until recently, nephrologists may have underappreciated the risks that acute kidney injury (AKI) poses to long-term kidney health. But a raft of clinical and epidemiological studies has shown that AKI greatly increases the risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD), end stage renal disease.

Also of interest:​

Even Stage 1 AKI Increases CKD Risk

Electronic Alert Protocol Reduces In-Hospital AKI Mortality

Genetic Markers Could Help Predict Hospital Patients at Risk for AKI
