I think these are 2 really great articles explaining not only the patho-physiological mechanisms of AKI, especially “pre-renal” dysfunction and ATN, but also the interesting relationship between cardiac output, circulating volume, blood pressure, renal blood flow and glomerular filtration. Acute Renal Success is a concept that has been around for a long time, as you can see from Boylan’s article, but I never really thought about this beofre I came across the article a number of years ago. For me, it deals with what I call “physiological” oliguria! Our great challenge in this area, I think, is to recognise when “physiological” oliguria becomes pathological.
