According to Koza, Y. (2016), “acute kidney injury (AKI) is a complex clinical disorder that is associated with severe morbidity and mortality. Despite technological advances in renal replacement therapy, AKI continues to be associated with poor outcomes. AKI is a syndrome of sudden loss of the kidney’s excretory function, often with oliguria, which usually occurs over the course of hours to days. AKI is common in hospitalized patients, especially in critically ill patients.
