  • Acute kidney injury [r]: Formerly termed acute renal failure (ARF), an abrupt (within 48 hours) reduction in kidney function currently defined as an absolute increase in serum creatinine, a percentage increase in serum creatinine , or a reduction in urine output beyond quantitatively defined levels [e]
  • Anemia [r]: A condition characterized by insufficient circulating and effective hemoglobin in blood to support normal physiology. [e]
  • Angiotensin [r]: Oligopeptides which are important in the regulation of blood pressure (vasoconstriction) and fluid homeostasis via the renin-angiotensin system. These include angiotensins derived naturally from precursor angiotensinogen, and those synthesized. [e]
  • Atenolol [r]: A cardioselective adrenergic beta-antagonist medication for hypertension and angina pectoris. [e]
  • Chronic kidney disease [r]: Kidney damage or glomerular filtration rate (GFR) <60 mL/min/1.73 m(2) for 3 months or more, irrespective of cause. [e]
  • Contrast-induced nephropathy [r]: Acute kidney injury from radiocontrast. [e]
  • Heart failure [r]: Defective cardiac filling and/or impaired contraction and emptying, resulting in the heart's inability to pump a sufficient amount of blood to meet the needs of the body tissues or to be able to do so only with an elevated filling pressure. [e]
  • Kidney [r]: Organs in the dorsal region of the vertebrate abdominal cavity, functioning to maintain proper water and electrolyte balance, regulate acid-base concentration, and filter the blood of metabolic wastes, which are then excreted as urine. [e]
  • Renal dialysis [r]: Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the blood by the kidneys based on dialysis. [e]
  • Renal replacement therapy [r]: Procedures which temporarily or permanently remedy insufficient cleansing of body fluids by the kidneys. [e]
  • Uremia [r]: Illness accompanying kidney failure unexplained by derangements in extracellular volume, inorganic ion concentrations, or lack of known renal synthetic products. [e]
