- 1. This drug, an analog of dopamine, has been shown in limited studies to cause selective renal arterial vasoDILATION and thus, enhance renal perfusion in the setting of ATN
- 2. A large proportion of renal mass is damaged before one sees an elevation of serum ________ in acute renal failure
- 3. The L in RIFLE
- 4. The I in RIFLE
- 5. There is little evidence to suggest that the use of this medication, which converts oliguric ARF to non-oliguric ARF, is of any benefit in hastening renal recovery
- 6. The AKIN criteria for acute renal failure generally corresponds to only the first three definitions in the RIFLE criteria (namely, R
- 7. I
- 8. and F) and does not utilize percent change in GFR in its classification system

- 11. Acronym for the new biomarker that is not detectable in health tubular cells but present when tubular cells are injured due to ischemia or toxic insult. No systemic source of this biomarker has been found, making its expression dependent on the presence of renal injury
