Acute renal failure in the elderly

Acute renal failure (ARF) refers to the sudden loss of renal function caused by various reasons, which may be reversed if properly treated. In recent years, with the continuous progress of dialysis, intravenous hypernutrition, antibiotics and other medical technologies, the treatment of ARF has been significantly improved. However, the mortality rate is still as high as 50% ~ 70%. One of the main reasons may be the elderly patients in ARF. The proportion of patients increased and the number of elderly patients undergoing complex surgery increased. Studies have shown that among the elderly with multiple organ failure, the mortality of those with renal failure is significantly higher. Therefore, in recent years, ARF of the elderly has attracted more and more attention.
