Importance of Evaluting Kidney Function Prior to an Anesthetic Event for Optimal Care
Anesthesia and the perioperative period can have adverse effects on cardiovascular and renal systems. Preanesthetic evaluation minimizes risk and may uncover pre-existing subclinical disease. Rationale assessment using newer biomarkers and management will be discussed.
- Review anesthetic affects on cardiovascular and kidney function
- Discuss appropriate preanesthetic assessment
- Discuss SDMA role as sensitive and specific GFR biomarker
- Review strategies of optimizing anesthetic outcomes
