ATS publishes joint statement on renal failure in the ICU patient
Date:5/14/2010

ents requires a specific management of the dialysate, and that these modalities, including the new sustained low-efficiency dialysis, may not be completely interchangeable in individual patients across a heterogeneous ICU population. Finally, the statement recommended abandoning the practice of using low-dose dopamine to improve renal function.

All things considered, the panel concluded that its "understanding of how to optimally prevent, diagnose and manage AKI in critical illness will require a great deal of additional research." But the researchers also hope that this statement provides a point from which a revolution in research and treatment of AKI may begin.

"We anticipate that this consensus conference report will redefine the field of critical care medicine by providing a common framework that will standardize the deign of clinical investigations and promote better communication among investigators and clinicians," said ATS past president John Heffner, M.D., who noted that a similar consensus conference on sepsis 20 years ago revolutionized the medical community's approach to studying and managing sepsis-related conditions. "We expect that the present conference will provide critical care physicians and investigators with similar opportunities to improve care and outcomes of patients in the ICU with acute kidney insufficiency."
