Acute kidney injury (AKI) is an increasing problem. Early detection of risk patients, prevention of nephrotoxic medication and dehydration related AKI and contrast-induced nephropathy is essential. Treatment of AKI is based on sufficient fluid therapy and prevention of hypovolemia. Early initiation of renal-replacement therapy does not seem to decrease mortality.
