Abstract

PROGNOSTIC FACTORS OF ACUTE RENAL FAILURE IN PATIENTS ADMITTED TO INTENSIVE CARE UNIT

Thaer Mohamed Alahmad*, Ibrahim Suliman and Maissa Barakat

ABSTRACT

Background: Acute renal failure(ARF) has been recognized as common condition in patients admitted to intensive care unit(ICU) and it is associated with increased risk of morbidity and mortality. Objective: the present study aims to determine incidence, risk factors, and outcome of acute renal failure in patients admitted to ICU. Materials and Methods: This is prospective, observational study conducted in ICU in Tishreen University Hospital-Lattakia -Syria from November 2018 to December 2019. Patients aged 18 to 70 years were screened for ARF according to (RIFLE) criteria. Results: During study period, of 152 patients, 49 (32.2%) developed ARF. Independent predictors of ARF were age older of 65 year(OR=3.8 [1.9 – 7.8], p:0.008), presence of infection on admission(OR=3.3 [2.1–8.9], p:0.002), history of diabetes mellitus(OR=2.4 [1.1–4.9], p:0.001), MAP<65(OR=4.1 [1.4–12.2], p:0.003) as well as hypertension(OR=5.4 [2.4 –11.8], p:0.001). The average length of stay in ICU for patients with ARF was longer than those without ARF(17.6 vs 10.5, p:0.002) with high rate of mortality(45% vs 22.3%, p:0.02). Conclusion: Acute renal failure in critically ill patients is associated with worsening prognosis, so identification risk factors of ARF and initiate preventive measures should be part of the management.
