Chapter 3 discusses Acute kidney injury (AKI), which is a frequent complication of sepsis: up to 65 percent of patients with septic shock develop AKI and their mortality is as high as 20–60 percent. The complication is commoner and deadlier when there is delay between the onset of sepsis and septic shock, and initiation of antibiotics. Mortality increases related to septic AKI can extend as far as one year after the insult, even in apparently mild forms of the condition such as community-acquired pneumonia. It covers Volume resuscitation, Vasoconstrictors, and RRT in sepsis.
