Transitioning out of the Intensive Care Unit: Providing Kidney Support after Continuous Kidney Replacement Therapy (CKRT)

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication of various diseases, interventional or invasive procedures, different surgeries, and often requires hospital admission, intensive care with or without continuous kidney replacement therapy (CKRT). Although the recovery rate after AKI and CKRT ranges approximately from 20 to 60% depending on several confounders, there is minimal data in existing literature reporting the kidney support protocols after CKRT and the long-term outcomes.

This article collection is dedicated to inviting the latest research topics providing valuable insight on kidney care after AKI and CKRT, as well as long-term outcomes of recovery from AKI. We also explore the factors that improve kidney and patient outcomes following AKI recovery based on the AKI etiology, severity, initiation and modality of CKRT, dose and timing of different CKRT modalities, and nutritional and medical supportive therapy during and after AKI and CKRT.

We are welcome to consider publication of brief and in-depth reviews, systematic reviews and metanalysis, original articles, protocols, and case series on the above-mentioned topics. This article collection will provide an excellent overview of the latest advances in supportive kidney care and healthcare in general after CKRT and AKI recovery, written by leading experts in this area. All researchers, experts, and professionals in the field of intensive care and resuscitation, nephrology and dialysis, pharmacology and nutrition, and many other specialists are welcome to submit their valuable articles.

Keywords: AKI, CKRT, post AKI care, post CKRT outcomes, post ICU supportive kidney care
