Summary 1
Accurate measurement of glomerular filtration rate as an indicator of renal function is of crucial importance because clinical decision-making at many occasions depend on the results obtained. In routine clinical practice, renal function is commonly evaluated with formulas that provide estimations of glomerular filtration rate (eGFR).

Global epidemiology and outcomes of AKI with respect to CKD

Estimates of AKI prevalence are different, ranging from <1% to as high as 66%.
