Abstract

Acute kidney injury after cardiac surgery is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Methods for measuring urine output in real time may better ensure renal perfusion perioperatively in contrast to the current standard of care where urine output is visually estimated after empiric epochs of time. In this study, we describe an accurate method for monitoring urine output continuously during cardiopulmonary bypass. This may provide a means for setting patientspecific targets for blood pressure and cardiopulmonary bypass flow as a potential strategy to reduce the risk for acute kidney injury.
