Neonatal Kidney Health Follow-Up Program

Are you eligible to participate in this study?

You may be eligible for this study if you meet the following criteria:

  • Conditions: infant | NICU | pediatric | ped | kidneys | kidney
  • Age: Between 0 - 100 Years
  • Gender: Male or Female

•We will approach and recruit all NICU patients with Stage 2 or Stage 3 Acute Kidney Injury at Riley Hospital for Children Downtown to participate in this follow-up study, and the follow-up program.
•We will approach all patients for participation that are admitted to the Neonatal ICU with any specific cause of AKI (with the exceptions per the exclusion criteria) who meets Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) stage 2 or 3 criteria for at least 48 hours. 

As part of ongoing care in the Riley Hospital for Children Downtown NICU, Dr. Starr (Study PI) or another Pediatric Nephrology provider will round with the Neonatology team as part of “Neonatal Nephrology” rounds. Patients identified as part of this clinical care will be referred for ongoing clinical care as part of the Neonatal Kidney Health Follow-Up Program. Of note, participation in this study is independent from the clinical care provided as part of the Neonatal Kidney Health Follow-Up Program, and families that chose not to participate in this research project will still be cared for in the follow-up program. The decision to enroll or not enroll in this study will not impact clinical care either in the NICU or after discharge.

•We will exclude infants who do not have any data available regarding AKI (no serum creatinine available and/or no urine output data available.)
