A REAL-TIME MONITOR TO DETECT THE ONSET OF ACUTE KIDNEY INJURY DURING CARDIAC SURGERY
International Conference on NEPHROLOGY AND UROLOGY

Keynote : J Clin Nephrol Ther
Acute kidney injury after cardiac surgery is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Methods for measuring urine output in real time may better ensure renal perfusion perioperatively in contrast to the current standard of care where urine output is visually estimated after empiric epochs of time. We developed an accurate method for monitoring urine output continuously during cardiopulmonary bypass. This may provide a means for setting patient-specific targets for blood pressure and cardiopulmonary bypass flow as a potential strategy to reduce the risk for acute kidney injury.
