Abstract

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common and serious. While it is usually cared for in hospital, it is no less important in primary care. AKI typically arises first in the community and is often not completely resolved at hospital discharge. Primary care has a role both in prevention and follow up of AKI. Surveillance for new chronic kidney disease (CKD) is recommended in guidelines. In this article we compare the diagnostic criteria for AKI and CKD, what a diagnosis means in primary care, and the role of primary care in monitoring for CKD after AKI.
