What every Intensivist should know about COVID-19 associated acute kidney injury

Marlies Ostermann, Nuttha Lumlertgul, Lui G. Forni, Eric Hoste,

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a serious complication in critically ill patients with COVID-19 with a reported incidence ranging from <5% to >25%. Proposed aetiologies include hypovolemia, hemodynamic disturbance and inflammation but also specific factors like direct viral invasion, microvascular thrombosis, and altered regulation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. To date, ... Read more >>
