Borasino S, Wall KM, Crawford JH, et al. Furosemide Response Predicts Acute Kidney Injury After Cardiac Surgery in Infants and Neonates. Pediatr Crit Care Med. 2018 Apr;19(4):310-317.
OBJECTIVE: Cardiac surgery-induced acute kidney injury occurs frequently in neonates and infants and is associated with postoperative morbidity/mortality; early identification of cardiac surgery-induced acute kidney injury may be crucial to mitigate postoperative morbidity. We sought to determine if hourly or 6-hour cumulative urine output after furosemide in the first 24 hours after cardiopulmonary bypass could predict development of cardiac surgery-induced acute kidney injury and other deleterious outcomes.
