Thanks to all of you who attended the Neonatal Nephrology in 2020 e-Poster and Platform sessions on Monday May 4th. We sincerely hope you enjoyed the presentations and cutting edge science. If you were unable to watch the sessions, we have posted the session for further viewing.
Our new article of the month comes from Dr. Erin Rademacher. Please read more about outcomes of chronic dialysis therapy in infants and neonates.
The decision as to whether to offer neonates and infants chronic dialysis has been a challenging one for many years, with data limited on survival and ongoing receipt of transplantation. This article helps to provide neonatologists and nephrologists with the outcomes from a large data registry demonstrating that outcomes have improved over the last two decades.
Thanks to Dr. Amanda Dyson for this month's Article of the Month. Please read more about impact of nephrotoxic medication stewardship in the NICU in this recent article by Dr. Christine Stoops.
The focus of our current AKI mitigation strategies has been early recognition, improved surveillance, and prevention of AKI where feasible. Nephrotoxic medication stewardship and targeted AKI surveillance in the highest risk populations represent key strategies for improving the care and outcomes of patients at risk for acute kidney injury.
