Electronic medical records and clinical information systems are increasingly used in hospitals and can be leveraged to improve recognition and care for acute kidney injury. This Acute Dialysis Quality Initiative (ADQI) workgroup was convened to develop consensus around principles for the design of automated AKI detection systems to produce real-time AKI(More)
BACKGROUND Patients started on long term hemodialysis have typically had low rates of reported renal recovery with recent estimates ranging from 0.9-2.4% while higher rates of recovery have been reported in cohorts with higher percentages of patients with acute renal failure requiring dialysis. STUDY DESIGN Our analysis followed approximately 194,000(More)
Cryptococcal meningitis is a common opportunistic infection among patients with AIDS. Cranial nerve neuropathies are well-known complications that occur due to increased intracranial pressure and inflammation of cranial nerves in such patients but have not been previously reported to involve more than four cranial nerves simultaneously. Our patient had(More)
Both type 1 diabetes mellitus and end-stage renal disease are associated with increased fracture risk, likely because of metabolic abnormalities that reduce bone strength. Simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation is a treatment of choice for patients with both disorders, yet the effects of simultaneous pancreas-kidney and kidney transplantation alone on(More)
C hronic kidney disease (CKD) affects 13% of the US population. 1 Although a significant proportion of these patients progress to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) requiring renal replacement therapy (RRT) 2 or renal transplantation, cardiovascular disease remains the most common cause of mortality and accounts for 53% of all deaths with a known cause in(More)
This study was undertaken to describe the association of patient race/ethnicity and renal allograft survival among the national cohort of pediatric renal allograft recipients. Additionally, we determined whether racial and ethnic differences in graft survival exist among individuals living in low- or high-poverty neighborhoods and those with private or(More)
BACKGROUND Only a subset of patients who enter stage 3 chronic kidney disease (CKD) progress to stage 4. Identifying which patients entering stage 3 are most likely to progress could improve outcomes, by allowing more appropriate referrals for specialist care, and spare those unlikely to progress the adverse effects and costliness of an unnecessarily(More)
A 70-year-old diabetic male patient with a baseline serum creatinine of 1.4 mg/dL presented with nausea and vomiting. He was diagnosed with metformin-associated lactic acidosis and acute kidney injury. He was managed with continuous veno-venous hemodiafiltration (CVVHDF). By measuring metformin concentration at different time intervals, we calculated the(More)
