SUPPORT AKI Project

Strategy for uptake of processes for recognizing and responding to AKI


Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common, serious complication that can happen to people undergoing surgery. Some people who develop AKI can end up with kidney failure, need dialysis and have to stay in the hospital longer.  

Researchers are studying if computer programs and other tools can help health care professionals recognize and manage AKI earlier. The goal of this project is to see if early detection and treatment can improve recovery, reduce the length of hospital stay and save health care costs.
