Title of the project: 

The Epidemiology and Prognostic Factors for Mortality in Intensive Care Unit Patients with Acute Kidney Injury in South East Asia

Topics: 

Acute kidney Injury

 

Short description of the project or abstract:

This is the first prospective multicenter observational study of AKI epidemiology in Southeast Asia. We will collect the data by registration in electronic web-based format. The data will be serially collected on the first 28 days of ICU admission. Standard KDIGO criteria is used to define AKI incidence. We use mortality at hospital discharge time as the clinical outcome.
We also explore the impact of age, gender, co-morbidity disease, APACHE II score, primary diagnosis, fluid balance, and timing of ICU admission to the AKI incidence and outcome. We expect that this study will raise the public concern. AKI is common and has great impact on ICU patients’ survival in Thailand and Laos.

 

Learning or Research objectives:

  • To determine the incidence of AKI among ICU patients in Thailand and Laos
  • To determine mortality rate of AKI patients in Thailand and Laos and compare the mortality between patients with and without AKI
  • To determine the incidence of renal replacement therapy among ICU patients in Thailand and Laos
  • To compare the length of ICU and hospital stay, total ventilator and inotropic drug days between patients with and without AKI
