Acute kidney injury (AKI) is strongly associated with an increased risk of unplanned hospital readmissions—especially for acute pulmonary edema, according to a study in BMC Nephrology. The researchers analyzed Scottish population-based data on 16,453 patients who were hospitalized and survived to discharge in 2003. Of these, 2623 patients had AKI, based on KDIGO criteria. AKI and other candidate predictors were analyzed as risk factors for unplanned readmission or death within 90 days.
The sudden onset of kidney problems often serves as a warning for doctors to discontinue patients’ use of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), sold under brand names Prevacid, Prilosec, Nexium and Protonix, among others. But a new study indicates that more than half of patients who develop chronic kidney damage while taking the drugs don’t experience acute kidney problems beforehand, according to researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
