To quantify the error in evaluating recovery from acute kidney injury (AKI) with estimated GFR (eGFR) in relation to ICU stay. Secondary analysis performed on the database of the EPaNIC trial. In a cohort of patients who developed AKI during ICU stay we compared eGFR with measured creatinine clearance (Clcr) at ICU discharge. Recovery of kidney function was assessed by comparison with baseline eGFR and the accuracy of eGFR to detect “potential CKD status” defined by Clcr was quantified. The… CONTINUE READING
