This piece is one of the highlights of both EBPOM London and EBPOM Dingle/Chicago where it provoked much discussion amongst the delegates. What does the data and evidence tell us about acute kidney injury (AKI) and how to respond to it? How do we detect and diagnose it as soon as possible? What else can be done? You can watch a video of the lecture in the on demand section of of the EBPOM Education Hub (www.ebpom.live.org).

This piece was recorded in advance of the the annual general meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA). TopMedTalk will be live streaming from the event, checkout www.ebpom.live.org for more details.
