Acute Renal Failure is a rapid deterioration of renal function, resulting in inability to maintain fluid, electrolyte and acid-base balance and is characterized by azotmeia that progresses over several hours or days, with or without oliguria, producing symptoms of anorexia, nausea, and vomiting. Seizures and coma may occur if the condition is untreated. It is estimated that 15% of adults admitted to hospital in developed countries develop AKI. It is particularly common in the elderly.
