COVID-19 and Dialysis for Acute Kidney Injury


“So again, especially early in the pandemic, we saw very high rates of severe acute kidney injury in patients in the ICU with uh, COVID and in some studies, this was as high as 30, 35% of patients developing acute kidney injury, many of whom needed dialysis.”

In this episode, Dr. Heung talks about his research focus in acute kidney injury (AKI), the effects of COVID-19 on the population of dialysis patients, and how we can keep our kidneys healthy.

Dr. Heung is a nephrologist (kidney specialist) at the University of Michigan where he has practiced since 2005.  While he is a general nephrologist and sees patients with a wide variety of kidney diseases, his particular research focus area is acute kidney injury.
