Prevention of Contrast Induced Acute Kidney Injury (CI-AKI) In Adult Patients

 

These guidelines have been developed by an intercollegiate working party of health professionals from The Renal Association, The Royal College of Radiologists and The British Cardiovascular Intervention Society to outline what is considered best practice for the administration of intravascular iodinated contrast agents to adults. We would like to thank the authors, Dr Andrew Lewington, Dr Robert MacTier, Dr Richard Hoefield, Dr Mark Downes, Dr Andrew Sutton and Dr David Smith.

These joint guidelines have been developed with direct input from The Royal College of Radiologists to ensure compliance with the RCR Standards for intravascular contrast agent administration to adult patients, Second edition.

Please note at the time of publication, NICE (The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) are in the process of developing national clinical guidelines on acute kidney injury at present, which are due for publication in August 2013.
