Description

The current laboratory approach for diagnosing renal impairment in preterm-infants lacks specificity. An overview of renal physiology is presented, with a more in-depth discussion of laboratory indices that may increase our ability to detect early renal impairment and/or damage. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify renal laboratory studies that indicate acute kidney injury.
  • Discuss the usefulness of common laboratory studies that assess renal function.
  • Describe when acute kidney injury is most likely, and should be evaluated with renal laboratory studies.

Speaker(s):

  • Terri Marin, PhD, NNP-BC, FAANP, Assistant Professor, Augusta University
