Through our collaborative work with partners at Cincinnati Children’s and other leading institutions, team members within the Center for Acute Care Nephrology (CACN) are developing a variety of therapies to treat acute kidney injury (AKI) and kidney failure. Specifically, the Center for Acute Care Nephrology can adapt treatment to accommodate a patient’s other conditions (recovery from heart bypass surgery or other medical therapies that take place at the same time). Plus, after initial treatment, our Long-Term AKI Follow-up Clinic provides care to ensure the best possible outcome for each patient. Services provided by the Center for Acute Care Nephrology include:
Supports kidney function by maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance daily or every other day with a three- to four-hour treatment running the patient's blood through a filter.
Supports kidney function by maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance daily (eight to 24 hours) by using the patient's own peritoneal membrane as a filter.
Supports kidney function by removing excess fluid from those patients who are fluid overloaded due to surgical procedures, heart failure or kidney disease.
Supports kidney function by maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance continuously; reserved for the sickest patients with acute kidney injury.
Removes pathogenic proteins or antibodies from the patient's plasma.
Removes abnormal red blood cells (usually sickle cells) from the patient when these cells are causing symptoms of stroke or other organ dysfunction.
Removes white blood cells from a patient with newly diagnosed leukemia to decrease the toxic burden associated with chemotherapy.
