Novel renal diagnostic tool to prevent acute kidney injury
According to the statistics, each year around 1.7 million people worldwide die from acute kidney injury (AKI), which in many cases develops during intensive care unit treatment. The best treatment for this complication is timely prevention. The EU-funded Clarity project introduces a critical care monitoring system that uses patented sensor technology, which enables analyses of the continuously changing composition and flow volume of urine, informing the medical staff in real time about changes in these parameters on a continuous basis. This information reflects changes in renal function and provides an early sign of AKI risk with the purpose of facilitating immediate intervention. The system has been tested during initial clinical trials and is currently being prepared for large-scale clinical trials.
