Acute Kidney Injury (AKI), previously known as acute renal failure, is a sudden loss of kidney function. AKI is strongly associated with mortality, increased lengths of stay, chronic morbidity and increased healthcare costs.

The London Acute Kidney Injury Network is a collaboration of healthcare professionals and organisations based in and around the capital. Our goal is equitable, high-quality AKI prevention and care in London.

London AKI Network was the world’s first clinical network for AKI. This model has now scaled Nationally across England.

We pioneered cross site-collaboration, harmonised regional pathways and clinical guidance, sharing of best practice, regional audit and patient engagement and support in AKI care. We oversaw the first regional deployment of a standardised AKI care bundle and electronic e-alerting (in both secondary and primary care). We developed the first dedicated online and mobile application resource on AKI for healthcare professionals and these open-access, award-winning resources are accessed nationally and globally. We also run the AKI academy, the UKs first regular AKI course, as well as other events for patients and professionals.

We share our freely and have presented at numerous regional, national and international meetings. If you would like to collaborate, please get in touch.

2014 London AKI Network was cited as an exemplar in the Future Hospital Commission Report.

The reason for this increased prevalence of pa is unknown. obat viagra tadalafil Even though obstructive sleep apnea and hypertension are highly correlated, the mechanism by which sleep apnea increases blood pressure remains obscure. The current study was undertaken to determine if there is an association between pa and osa among patients with resistant hypertension consistent with the hypothesis that osa induces hyperaldosteronism. buy generic viagra on line Methods: in consecutive patients referred to a university clinic for resistant hypertension, we determined the 24-hour urinary aldosterone excretion during high dietary salt ingestion and baseline plasma renin activity and plasma aldosterone in all subjects. Viagra 5mg daily side effects Primary hyperaldosteronism was defined as a plasma renin activity was <1. 0 ng/ml/hr and urinary aldosterone was >12 mcg/24-hr during high urinary sodium excretion (>200 meq/24-hr). In addition, all patients completed the berlin questionnaire, a survey designed to identify patients at risk of having sleep apnea. buy viagra online pharmacy Results: of the 117 patients evaluated, sleep apnea has been confirmed by polysomnographic evaluation (respiratory distress index ≥5 apnea/hypoapnea events per hour) in 32 patients. Best place order viagra online forum Forty-one patients had a low-probability of having sleep apnea based on their responses to the berlin questionnaire. Patients with confirmed sleep apnea were over 3 times more likely to have been diagnosed with hyperaldosteronism compared to patients at low-risk of having sleep apnea (50 vs. generic viagra uk pharmacy 16%), tended to lower plasma renin activity (0. 7±0. 8 vs. 2. 0±4. 2 ng/ml/hr) and had significantly greater urinary aldosterone excretion (16. 6±12. cheap viagra 2 vs. generic viagra usa pharmacy 9. buy viagra online cheap uk 4±7. order cheap viagra online 2 mcg/24-hr, p<0. discounted generic viagra 05). viagra bad young men Conclusion: these data indicate a very high degree of association between sleep apnea and primary hyperaldosteronism suggesting that sleep apnea may contribute to the development of resistant hypertension by inducing hyperaldosteronism.
