Critical Care Nephrology: 2022 Update (Kidney Week 2022)
This Early 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, which include hemodynamic monitoring and support; fluid optimization; extracorporeal techniques for sepsis; ethical issues; and management of dysnatremias, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and COVID-19. Presentations also focus on management of critically ill patients with AKI, including such specific populations as patients who are pregnant and those with liver disease, heart failure, 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 when prescribing RRT. Many presentations use instructive cases.
