Acute renal failure

defination


Acute renal failure (ARF) is a clinical syndrome in
which a sudden deterioration in renal function results
in the inability of the kidneys to maintain fluid and
electrolyte homeostasis.



ARF occurs in 2–3% of children admitted to pediatric
tertiary care centers



ARF occurs in 8% of infants in the neonatal intensive
care unit.

causes
• Prerenal ARF
• characterized by diminished effective

circulating arterial volume
• which leads to inadequate renal
perfusion and a decreased glomerular
filtration rate (GFR)
– Evidence of kidney damage is absent.


–Common causes of prerenal ARF
include
o dehydration
o sepsis
o hemorrhage,
o severe hypoalbuminemia
o cardiac failure

–If the underlying cause of the renal
hypoperfusion is reversed promptly,
renal function returns to normal
– If hypoperfusion is sustained, intrinsic
renal parenchymal damage may develop

Intrinsic renal ARF

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
