Ventilation and the Kidney

  • H. J. Priebe
Part of the Update in Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine book series (UICM, volume 5)


Respiratory support is amongst the most frequently employed therapeutic as well as prophylactic aids in anesthesia and intensive care. It is therefore important to be aware that respiratory support may impair renal function. The reason for this is essentially twofold:
  1. a)

    patients requiring mechanical ventilation frequently suffer from underlying diseases that by themselves predispose to the development of renal insufficiency; and

  2. b)

    ventilation per se predisposes to renal dysfunction. Ventilation should therefore be viewed as an additional risk factor for the development of acute renal failure.
