How Point-of-Care Measurement of Ionized Magnesium and Plasma Volume Can Impact CRRT and Hemodialysis in Patients with AKI and CKD
Wouter Tiel Groenestege, PhD & Mitch Rosner, MD, MACP
Sponsored by: Nova Biomedical
Synopsis:
In this 1 hour presentation sponsored by Nova Biomedical you will hear from Dr. Mitchell Rosner about the utility of point-of-care measurement of plasma volume and its utility and importance in patients with AKI and those undergoing RRT. In addition Dr. Wouter Gronestege will present findings of a recent study that shows how ionized and not total magnesium is reflective of plasma magnesium status, particularly in patients undergoing CRRT.

Assessing the risk of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI)- A paradigm shift in renal care
V. Seenu Reddy, MD, MBA, FACS, FACC
Sponsored by: bioMerieux
Description:
Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) is one of the more prevalent and serious morbidities in hospitalized patients and is associated with a multitude of acute and chronic conditions. The economic and public health burden of AKI is significant with substantially increased mortality, morbidity, length of ICU stay and in-hospital costs. The NEPHROCHECK® Test [TIMP-2 • IGFBP-7] is an FDA cleared combination biomarker test that can significantly discriminate AKI from no-AKI, and when used in conjunction with clinical evaluation, can aid physicians in optimizing patient management.
