Intensive Care Nephrology
Our nephrology critical care services’ diagnostic and therapeutic knowledge is frequently beneficial to patients in the intensive care unit (ICU). Our specialists have expertise providing improved dialysis to critically ill patients as well as new renal replacement techniques. There is evidence that using these techniques can help individuals with acute renal failure.
Other Nephrology Treatments
Over the past 20 years, the treatment of patients in ICUs has become more and more complicated. These patients profit from the knowledge of physicians who focus on critical care medicine and who take a particular interest in studying cutting-edge treatments to enhance the care of patients with renal disease related to critical illness.
Acute renal failure is treated by our nephrology critical care service physicians, along with fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base problems. Between the surgical, anaesthesia, and critical care medicine teams and the nephrology teams, specific renal support strategies are organised.
In the past ten years alone, significant progress has been made in knowledge of the epidemiology and pathophysiology of disorders like acute renal failure, fluid overload, and metabolic acidosis. Technological improvements in monitoring and treatment have gone along with these advancements. Finally, clinical evidence that informs management is getting stronger and more commonly used.
