  12. Further research is recommended to assess the effect of test-guided preventive care (see section 5.1) on clinical outcomes (such as length of stay in hospital, mortality and need for renal replacement therapy and progression to chronic kidney disease). Research should be done in children, young people and adults, but specific considerations may be needed for children and young people when care differs from that for an adult population. Studies should investigate the effects of both positive and negative test results on clinical decisions and subsequent care.

  17. 1.1 Evidence on the safety of electrical stimulation to improve muscle strength in chronic respiratory conditions, chronic heart failure and chronic kidney disease shows no major safety concerns. For people who are having an acute exacerbation of their chronic condition and are unable to exercise, evidence of efficacy is adequate to support the use of this procedure provided that standard arrangements are in place for clinical governance, consent and audit.   Find out  what standard arrangements mean on the NICE website .
