Chronic Kidney Disease

What are kidney diseases?

Kidney diseases are a group of conditions that damage kidneys and prevent them from functioning correctly. Diabetes, high BP, or genetic disorders like polycystic kidney disease may cause kidney diseases. A patient with kidney disease will no longer be able to effectively filter waste out of blood, leading to serious medical problems.

Critical Care Nephrology

Critical Care Nephrology is a multidisciplinary effort to treat Acute Kidney Injury (AKI). AKI is a severe disease that can lead to long-term kidney damage.

When an individual suffers from AKI, blood pressure drops significantly, leading to decreased kidney oxygenation. AKI can be fatal if left untreated.

AKI has many causes: sepsis, trauma, heart failure or renal disease are just some of the many ways that someone can suffer from this condition.
