Management of Acute Kidney Failure​

Managing acute kidney failure, also known as acute kidney injury (AKI), is a critical medical intervention that requires prompt diagnosis and treatment. Rapidly identify the signs and symptoms of AKI, including decreased urine output, fluid retention, and elevated creatinine and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) levels. Determine and address the underlying cause of AKI, which can include dehydration, infections, medication toxicity, or underlying medical conditions. Carefully manage fluid balance, as both dehydration and fluid overload can worsen AKI. Tailor fluid administration to the patient's needs. Diuretics may be used cautiously to manage fluid overload, but their use should be monitored closely. Review and adjust medications, especially nephrotoxic drugs, which can exacerbate kidney injury. Monitor and correct electrolyte imbalances, such as hyperkalemia or hyponatremia, which can occur in AKI. Consider renal replacement therapy (hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis) in severe cases to remove waste products and excess fluids from the bloodstream.
