Acute kidney injury (AKI), previously coined as acute renal failure (ARF), is a health condition whereby your kidneys suddenly can no longer filter waste through the blood. The statistics for the occurrence of AKI after hospitalization are scary: in the United States, only 1% of the population admitted to a hospital have AKI. The percentage goes up to 2-5% during hospitalization and rises to 21% after patients receive a kidney transplant. There is a steep rise in intensive care unit (ICU) patients, where the percentage shoots up to 67%. Signs of AKI include, but are not limited to, the following: decreased urine production, nausea, fatigue, irregular heartbeat, loss of appetite, and pain in the flanks. A-1 Home Care in Studio City is committed to delivering superior in-home care services for patients with all types of kidney failure.
