The Center for Acute Care Nephrology offers comprehensive therapy options when treating acute kidney injury needs. Armed with the most advanced therapies, the CACN adapts treatments to accommodate a patient’s conditions. Through our collaborative work with partners at Cincinnati Children’s and other institutions, the CACN team members are able to provide the following services:
Acute Renal Replacement Therapies: Acute renal replacement therapies can be initiated for acute kidney injury, fluid overload and/or sepsis. The collaborative decision to start renal replacement therapy is based on many factors and helps determine which therapy can be started.
Acute Therapeutic Pheresis: Pheresis is a therapy that is used to remove antibodies pathogenic proteins or unwanted cellular components from a patient. It is commonly used for patients who may be experiencing acute rejection of a transplanted organ, some neurological issues and those patients with extremely elevated white cell counts or elevated sickle hemoglobin cells.
Acute Extracorporeal Liver Support: Cincinnati Children’s is excited to be one of the few sites worldwide that is able to offer acute extracorporeal liver support, or MARS therapy, for those patients that have hepatic encephalopathy or for the treatment of drug overdose and poisonings.
The Nephrology and Hypertension Division at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center provides comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for the entire range of disorders of the kidney and urinary tract.
