Episode 30 - Acute Kidney Injury in the SICU with kidney_boy Dr. Joel Topf

Trauma ICU Rounds

Science & Medicine

Dr. Joel Topf joins us on Rounds to discuss and review key concepts in the recognition and management of acute kidney injury (AKI) in the SICU. AKI is a common and morbid complication among hospitalized patients. Further, trauma and surgical patients, in particular, are at an increased risk for AKI due to the myriad of pre-, intra-, and postrenal insults that commonly occur at the time of injury, during resuscitation, surgery,, as well as from iatrogenic insults including IV contrast, NSAIDs, antibiotics (aminoglycosides and the infamous Pip/Tazo/Vanco ice cream sandwich).  From the use of a DDAVP clamp in patients with severe hyponatremia to the use of balanced solutions in critically ill patients, kidney_boy breaks it down for us as only a true salt whisperer can!
