Medication in AKI

Children with AKI need a full review of all their medication, which may need to be stopped, avoided or reduced (fig.1). [4]

In the context of the Paediatric emergency department:

  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs should not be given.
  • Do not delay administration of antibiotics in suspected sepsis. However, dose reductions may be required once the child’s level of renal function is known
