Anemia: Obstacle for AKI in Cardiac Patients

Anemia the condition where hemoglobin level is below 10 g/dL, is recognized as a modifiable risk factor for acute kidney injury in patients undergoing cardiac surgery. Acute kidney injury may be termed as a serum creatinine increase of at least 0.3 mg/dL within 48 hours or the need for renal replacement therapy, in accordance with Acute Kidney Injury Network criteria.

Study by Godin and colleagues tracked 1598 medical patients for 2 yrs, where 348 patients with acute kidney injury were significantly older than the 1598 without kidney injury, had a higher body mass index, and had more comorbidities. Significantly more patients with kidney injury than without had a baseline hemoglobin level below 10 g/dL (51.1% vs 37.9%; P < .001).
