ACUTE & CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE / HEMODIALYSIS

Acute kidney failure occurs when your kidneys suddenly become unable to filter waste products from your blood. When your kidneys lose their filtering ability, dangerous levels of wastes may accumulate, and your blood’s chemical makeup may get out of balance.
Acute kidney failure can be fatal and requires intensive treatment. However, acute kidney failure may be reversible. If you’re otherwise in good health, you may recover normal or nearly normal kidney function.

Symptoms

  • Decreased urine output, although occasionally urine output remains normal
  • Fluid retention, causing swelling in your legs, ankles or feet
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion
  • Nausea
  • Weakness
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Chest pain or pressure

Treatment of Acute & Chronic Kidney Failure / Hemodialysis

  • Treatment of the cause
  • Oxygen therapy
  • Often mechanical ventilation

People with ARDS are treated in an intensive care unit (ICU). Successful treatment usually depends on treating the underlying disorder (for example, pneumonia). Usually, a ventilator delivers oxygen-rich air under pressure using a tube inserted through the mouth into the windpipe (trachea).

Complications

  • Fluid buildup. Acute kidney failure may lead to a buildup of fluid in your lungs, which can cause shortness of breath.
  • Chest pain. If the lining that covers your heart (pericardium) becomes inflamed, you may experience chest pain.
  • Muscle weakness. When your body’s fluids and electrolytes — your body’s blood chemistry — are out of balance, muscle weakness can result.
  • Death. Acute kidney failure can lead to loss of kidney function and, ultimately, death.

Risk Factor

  • Being hospitalized, especially for a serious condition that requires intensive care
  • Advanced age
  • Blockages in the blood vessels in your arms or legs (peripheral artery disease)
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart failure
  • Kidney diseases
  • Liver diseases
