  title={Acute Renal Failure},
  author={Naveen Singri and Shubhada N. Ahya and Murray L. Levin},
ACUTE RENAL FAILURE (ARF) remains a common and critical clinical entity affecting 5% to 7% of all hospitalized patients. It is associated with various medical problems, treatments, and procedures. Despite advances in medical care, ARF still carries a significant morbidity and a 20% to 70% mortality rate. Unfortunately, this has not improved during the past 50 years because of a sicker and older population.
