BACKGROUND A potential independent association was recently demonstrated between high red blood cell distribution width (RDW) and the risk of all-cause mortality in patients with cardiovascular disease, although the mechanism remains unclear. However, there have been no reports on the relationship between RDW and mortality in acute kidney injury (AKI) patients treated with continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT). In this study, we assessed whether RDW was associated with mortality in AKI… CONTINUE READING
