Acute kidney injury (AKI) is an important complication following cardiac and noncardiac surgery. Up to 18% of hospitalized patients develop AKI, and those who are critically ill have an even higher risk. Comparatively, the incidence of AKI in the perioperative period is 18-47%(1). Patients with even modest increases in their serum creatinine have increases in their mortality, morbidity, length of stay, and hospital costs. Perioperative AKI is associated with an increased risk of sepsis, anemia, coagulopathy, and mechanical ventilation. Notably, mortality is higher in patients with perioperative AKI even after complete renal recovery(1). Perioperative AKI correlates with type of surgical procedure, patient characteristics, volume status, hemodynamics, and exposure to nephrotoxins. Presurgical risk stratification and early risk mitigation is extremely important to avoid injury and need for renal replacement therapy (RRT). The following module defines perioperative AKI, identifies specific risk factors and tools for risk stratification, provides an overview of the workup of perioperative AKI, and evaluates various renal protective strategies that can be implemented during this high-risk period.

Many hospitalists provide critical care services without adequate support or training, putting patients at risk and exposing hospitalists to medical liability. This educational series covers common or high-risk clinical scenarios that hospitalists encounter in and out of the intensive care unit.

As a consultant, hospitalists commonly risk stratify and offer risk reduction strategies for patients undergoing surgery. Effective perioperative pulmonary risk consultation requires hospitalists to identify patient- and procedure-related predictors for developing postoperative pulmonary complications and to propose strategies to reduce the risk. The following module will examine these topics and provide evidence-based risk reduction strategies. In addition, the role of routine preoperative spirometry and chest radiograph will be discussed.
