Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
Introduction: Acute kidney injury (AKI) increases mortality, hospital cost, and rate of progression toward end stage kidney disease 1-4. Early diagnosis and management of AKI is known to improve the above mentioned outcomes.
Hypothesis: the investigators will design and validate an electronic surveillance tool to screen all the ICU admissions for the earlier, more efficient diagnosis of AKI and as a result improve the outcome of AKI in ICU patients.
Methods: the investigators plan to use the patient database, and AKIN (AKI network) definition to design an electronic alert system to allow clinicians discover patients who develop AKI. Then a randomized clinical trial will be conducted to compare earlier intervention (based on Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes [KDIGO] guidelines) initiated by AKI sniffer alert to the conventional management provided by primary physician in ICU.
