This self-study course will provide current information on rapid
creatinine testing and how it may assist with therapeutic decision-making
and improve the prognosis for patients with acute kidney injury (AKI).
AKI may lead to morbidity and mortality in many types of patients.
One of the difficulties in treating AKI is making the diagnosis early
enough to alter the course of the disease. Rapid creatinine testing may
assist in preventing injury by assessing the decline in renal function
early and subsequently prevent long-term chronic kidney disease.
