Severity and Outcomes of Afro-Caribbean Patients Diagnosed with Community Acquired Acute Kidney Injury at an Institution in Jamaica

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.505
Pages: 
141–9
Synopsis: 
There is limited data on community-acquired acute kidney injury (CA-AKI) in low/middle-income countries. Although the incidence of community-acquired AKI is much higher than hospital-acquired acute kidney injury, most previous studies on AKI mainly focussed on the latter one. A retrospective prevalence study was conducted for six months at the University Hospital of the West Indies, Mona, Jamaica to find out the prevalence, severity and outcomes of CA-AKI. The study demonstrated the prevalence of different AKI stages and its relationship to the contributory factors. It also highlighted the impact of severity on the renal outcomes.
