Clinical Practice Session

Artificial Intelligence and Its Promise to Complement AKI Care

November 02, 2023 | 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Location: Room 201, Pennsylvania Convention Center

Session Description

Nephrology is leading efforts to use data science to enhance approaches to AKI care. In this session, experts provide a foundation for the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in clinical care before sharing recent efforts to develop and validate AI models. Given the advances AI has made in other areas of medicine, its impact on AKI continues to grow, and nephrologists in all practice settings will be exposed to AI in the setting of AKI care in the near future.

ASN thanks the ASN AKINow Artificial Intelligence Workgroup and the Augmented Intelligence and Digital Health Task Force for assistance with this session.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Characterize AI for those caring for patients with AKI
  • Outline ways in which AI is being used in the intensive care unit to improve patient outcomes independent of AKI (e.g., delirium, respiratory failure)
  • Categorize and compare the varied AI methods used for AKI risk assessment and interpret their use with and without AKI care alerts
  • Explain how AI can be used to guide drug dosing in the setting of AKI

Learning Pathway(s)

  • AKI and Critical Care
