Information for the public
Acute kidney injury is more common in people who are very unwell and in hospital. If you're in hospital and healthcare professionals are worried that you may be at risk of acute kidney injury, they should regularly check your condition to look for changes in heart rate, temperature, blood pressure and rate of breathing. They should also be aware of any changes in the amount of urine you pass. See the section called Other NICE guidance for details of our guidance on monitoring adults in hospital.
