Abstract
Background: The Spectrum and burden of AKI in developing countries may be different from that of developed countries. Objective: to determine the short-term clinical outcome in children with Acute kidney injury admitted in PICU. Setting: PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit) at Basaveshwar teaching and general hospital and Sangameshwar hospital attached to Mahadevappa Rampure medical college. Result: most common condition associated with AK was sepsis, encephalitis. Pre-renal causes accounted for (54) 78.3% of AKI. In the present study, AKI Stage 1, 2, 3 was diagnosed in 11 (15.9%), 14 (20.3%) and 44(63.8%) of AKI patients. Maximum number of AKI patients were in Stage 3 (p< 0.001). 63.8%. AKI was associated with increased mortality (p<0.000).mortality rate was 34.8% compared to non AKI. Conclusion: It was concluded AKI continues to be associated with adverse outcomes, including high mortality and morbidity. Early diagnosis of AKI using new defined criteria (AKIN, RIFLE, p RIFLE) along with early and appropriate management of risk factors will prevent the progression of AKI and decrease the mortality and morbidity of AKI patients.
