What About the Babies? Updates on the Care of Newborns at Risk for Acute and Chronic Kidney Disease

October 23, 2020 | 02:30 PM - 04:30 PM

Location: Live-Streamed

Session Description

Over the last 5 years, the field of neonatal nephrology has emerged. We now know that AKI is very common in critically ill neonates, and we recognize the long-term consequences of AKI, prematurity, and intra-uterine growth failure. As more critically ill neonates are surviving, the number of neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) graduates with CKD will continue to increase. This session addresses this "hot topic" in pediatric nephrology from the perspective of developmental biologists and adult clinicians who care for these NICU graduates.

ASN thanks the American Society of Pediatric Nephrology for assistance with this session.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Explain how prematurity and intrauterine growth failure affect kidney development
  • Review the epidemiology of neonatal AKI
  • Identify which treatment strategies apply to both pediatric and adult populations and are currently being implemented for neonates to improve hospital outcomes
  • Describe the long-term impact of AKI, prematurity, and intrauterine growth retardation on outcomes
  • Update on Kidney Support Therapy for Neonates
