POST-RENAL (randomised evaluation of normal vs augmented level of renal replacement therapy in ICU)

 

Overview

The POST-RENAL (randomised evaluation of normal vs augmented level of renal replacement therapy in ICU) study, conducted by the George Institute for Global Health, is a follow-up study with patients from the RENAL study. The RENAL study compared patients in the ICU in Australian and New Zealand hospitals to find out if increasing the dose of dialysis would prevent these patients from dying.

The POST-RENAL study will follow-up patients over three years to better understand how their health and lives have been affected by acute kidney injury. This information will fill a significant gap in current understanding of acute kidney injury, kidney disease, and the best treatments possible to improve the lives of patients in Australia and around the world.
