Acute Kidney Injury (AKI)

The UK Renal Registry was involved in a pilot study for a few renal units in 2013, collecting data on patients with AKI who were dialysed in a renal unit. Up until then only data on chronic haemodialysis patients was collected.

From 2015 data on all patients dialysed in a renal unit will be collected and this will include haemodialysis for Acute Kidney Injury. This will enable an accurate count of cases of AKI and their outcomes for the first time.
