Detection of patients with acute kidney injury by the clinical laboratory using rises in serum creatinine: comparison of proposed definitions and a laboratory delta check.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Timely detection of acute kidney injury (AKI) in hospital patients has been hampered by the multiple definitions of AKI and difficulties applying their criteria. A laboratory delta check may provide an effective means of detecting patients developing AKI. This study compared three of the proposed AKI definitions and a delta check to detect AKI… (More)
