Publications & Presentations
  • Detection and Management of AKI in the Developing World: The 18th Acute Disease Quality Initiative (ADQI) International Consensus Conference
  • The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) April 26, 2017
    It is apparent that AKI is a multidisciplinary disease that requires the education and training of multiple caregivers who will encounter these patients in diverse settings. Consequently, the consensus statements reflect the diversity in knowledge, socioeconomic conditions, availability of resources, and cultural factors that influence access to care and outcomes. There remain several gaps in our knowledge that will need to be addressed in future research. We hope that these recommendations will provide a framework for caregivers to identify and manage patients with AKI more efficiently and ultimately improve outcomes.
  • Study of incidence and risk factors of urinary tract infection in catheterized patients admitted at tertiary care hospital, Nizamabad, Telangana State, India
  • International Archives of Integrated Medicine July 14, 2016
    To conclude, the overall incidence of CAUTI was 59% and most of them were asymptomatic found in both sexes in all age group of patients. The high incidence of CAUTI reflects poor catheter care and practice of disconnections of closed systems. Multivariate analysis showed age, duration of catheterization, catheter disconnection, absence of antibiotic use and renal insufficiency as important independent risk factors for CAUTI. Female sex, person performing catheterization, mortality and diabetes did not show any association with CAUTI, further studies with more number of patients are required to find out exact association between underlying medical disorders like diabetes. We recommend that even for the bladder wash, disconnections to be avoided to reduce the incidence of CAUTI similarly incidence of CAUTI can be reduced by minimizing the catheter procedure, taking maximum aseptic precautions, reducing the duration of catheterization which becomes more significant with underlying renal disease. Prophylactic antibiotic prevents CAUTI. As most of the CAUTI were asymptomatic, patients who were catheterized should be screened for CAUTI and should be treated depending upon antibiotic sensitivity of uropathogen.
