- Acute kidney injury : 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
- Anemia : A condition characterized by insufficient circulating and effective hemoglobin in blood to support normal physiology.
- Angiotensin : 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.
- Atenolol : A cardioselective adrenergic beta-antagonist medication for hypertension and angina pectoris.
- Chronic kidney disease : Kidney damage or glomerular filtration rate (GFR) <60 mL/min/1.73 m(2) for 3 months or more, irrespective of cause.
- Contrast-induced nephropathy : Acute kidney injury from radiocontrast.
- Heart failure : 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.
- Kidney : 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.
- Renal dialysis : Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the blood by the kidneys based on dialysis.
- Renal replacement therapy : Procedures which temporarily or permanently remedy insufficient cleansing of body fluids by the kidneys.
- Uremia : Illness accompanying kidney failure unexplained by derangements in extracellular volume, inorganic ion concentrations, or lack of known renal synthetic products.
