Recognition and Treatment of Infections in ESKD and AKI in Sepsis – A Special World Kidney Day Event


Thursday, March 9, 2023 at 12:00pm PT - 1:00pm PT
This event has ended.



Studies have shown that death from sepsis in end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) patients can be up to 50% higher than that of the general population. Furthermore, acute kidney injury (AKI) is a frequent complication associated with sepsis, and AKI from sepsis carries an increased risk of morbidity and mortality. During this special World Kidney Day webinar, presented by Sepsis Alliance, presenters will overview infections and sepsis risk factors, outcomes, hemodialysis access considerations, and treatments for ESKD patients. Participants will also learn about AKI risk factors from sepsis, and review treatments, outcomes, and post-sepsis and AKI recovery.
