Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) is highly prevalent in ICU settings and requires significant consideration.  AKI is rarely attributed to a single factor, and most critically ill patients who develop AKI have coexisting conditions.

Many forms of AKI are preventable and patients at risk should be evaluated early according to clinical condition and biomarkers.  Discuss AKI prevention and pharmacological treatment strategies.  Include specific recommendations for preventing or treating drug-induced AKI.
