Abstract

Prerenal azotemia is a common occurrence in hospitalized patients and is generally easier to define in clinical practice than in clinical research. Monitoring the duration of acute kidney injury and biomarkers of kidney function might help distinguish prerenal azotemia from acute tubular necrosis in both clinical practice and research settings.
