What are the types of kidney failure?
There are usually two types of Kidney Failure. First is acute and second is chronic kidney failure.
There are the different reason of is acute and second is chronic kidney failure.
Here I will discuss one of the causes of acute renal failure at the present era of the time of Global Pandemic.
A bird-eye view on Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The World Health Organization (WHO) has classified the resulting Coronavirus (COVID-19) as a global pandemic. The recent Chinese experience with Coronavirus (COVID-19) has addressed the clinical features of the virus, including risk factors and prognoses in the general population.
Since December 2019, the novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) has spread from a single city in Hubei, China to most of the world.
Symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Patients suffering from Coronavirus (COVID-19), present with myalgia, fever, and cough. These are the most common symptoms.
The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (COVID-19) is the causative agent of atypical pneumonia, which affected global population with mortalities.
Complications of Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Coronavirus spike (S) glycoproteins mediate entry into cells and end predominantly in pulmonary epithelial alveolar cells, which triggers interstitial pneumonia, which develops as a result of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
Kidney Failure in Coronavirus (COVID-19)
About 25% of acute kidney failure has been reported in this clinical setting. These data were recently confirmed by the Italian report “Istituto Superiore di Sanità”, which described an incidence of 27.8% in more than 2000 patients (updated on March 17) (https: //www.epicentro.iss. it / coronavirus / Bollettino /). Report-COVID-2019_17_marzo-v2.pdf). In this comment, we discuss possible mechanisms of Coronavirus (COVID-19) -induced acute kidney Failure and show possible new approaches for risk stratification of Coronavirus (COVID-19)-infected patients, which can be helpful in the clinical decision in this emerging scenario.
ARDS patients, who develop acute kidney failure, are at higher risk of serious consequences and mortality. In my opinion, it is imperative to create a predictive model to stratify Coronavirus (COVID-19), infected patients, by acute kidney failure severity. This approach could lead to an innovative biomarker-based intervention strategy in this emerging clinical competition that will result in a better allocation of hospital resources.
