Critical Care Nephrology: 2021 Update

Course Description

Designed for trainees, practicing nephrologists, advanced practitioners, nurses, and other clinicians who care for critically ill patients with kidney diseases, this program reviews principles of critical care nephrology and provides updates on the latest developments. Presentations review topics in critical care medicine relevant to nephrology providers: hemodynamic monitoring and support, fluid optimization, management of dysnatremias, management of acute respiratory distress syndrome, ethical issues, and management of AKI in specific clinical settings.

Discussions of the management of critically ill patients with AKI also include such specific populations as patients who are pregnant and those with liver disease or cancer. In addition, the program covers the short- and long-term outcomes of AKI, how to manage patients with AKI and persistent dialysis needs, and key considerations in the prescription of RRT.

All on-demand presentations will be available starting Monday, October 25. This program will feature two live, interactive sessions on October 27-28 which will be available on-demand after the live sessions. Note: There is no syllabus.

ASN designates this blended learning activity for a maximum of 15.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Nurses: This activity is awarded up to 15.00 ANCC contact hours.

(The credits total will be updated based on actual time.)

Course Objective(s)

Upon completion of the program, the participant will be able to: 1) describe evidence-based approaches to the management of shock; 2) discuss the diagnosis and management of cardiorenal and hepatorenal syndromes; 3) characterize current evidence for the clinical use of AKI biomarkers; 4) describe the long-term complications for patients who survive an episode of AKI; and 5) explain the most appropriate dose and prescription of RRT for patients who are critically ill with AKI.
