Title of the project:

 Comparison of clinical characteristics etiology and the clinical outcomes between the patients with community acquired
and hospital acquired Acute Kidney Injury in a tertiary healthcare hospital in South India

Topic: 

Acute Kidney Injury 

 

Short description of the project or abstract:

All adult patients with AKI admitted in JIPMER hospital shall be identified using clinical and biochemical criteria based on AKIN definition of AKI. The subjects shall be categorised into 'Community acquired AKI' and 'Hospital Acquired AKI' based on the context in which the AKI developed. The Etiology, Severity of AKI, clinical characteristics, Requirement for Renal Replacement Therapy and clinical outcomes shall be studied and compared between the two categories of AKI. A systematic attempt shall be made to identify and list the contributing factors towards development of AKI in individual patients (Eg: Snake envenomation + DIC + Ischemia from hypotension + sepsis from cellulitis with gangrene + capillary leak), whenever possible. All patients shall be screened for specific ‘exposures’ as well as ‘susceptibility factors’ defined by the KDIGO AKI guidelines and the presence or absence of each of the factors shall be documented.

 

Learning or Research objectives:

  • To compare the short term outcomes of patients with community acquired AKI Vs patients with hospital acquired AKI
  • To estimate the burden of Hospital acquired and Community acquired AKI at JIPMER
  • To compare and contrast the etiological factors (exposures and susceptibilities) for AKI between Community acquired AKI and Hospital acquired AKI
