Welcome study authors, distinguished experts, and guests! My name is Steven and I will be your moderator as we address the question, "When is it appropriate to commence dialysis after AKI?"
Please post any questions you may have. I am looking forward to a great discussion in the days ahead.
I would like to start off our discussion with a foundational question for our study authors. Could you please share with us some details about the origins of this study? I am aware AKI leads to significant morbidity and mortality worldwide, but what led your team to address this issue through such a major undertaking as this multicenter RCT? What clinical experiences have you personally encountered that motivate you to seek a definitive answer on this topic? Thank you.
