The objectives of this study were to examine the clinical profile of critically ill patients with septic acute kidney injury (AKI) and to investigate clinical characteristics associated with the outcome of patients.


Data from 582 critically ill patients were collected and retrospectively reviewed. Patients were divided into two groups without AKI development and with AKI development. Baseline characteristics, laboratory, and other clinical data were compared between these two groups, and correlations between the characteristics and AKI development were examined. Patients with AKI development were further divided into two groups according to the survival outcome, and variables associated with the outcome were determined.


AKI was developed in 54.12% (n = 315) of patients, and these patients had blood pressure, SOFA score, APACHE II score, GCS, and various blood chemistry and hematology characteristics significantly different from the patients without AKI. Demographic characteristics (e.g. age and weight) were comparable between the two groups of patients. Among the 315 patients with AKI, 136 of them died during the study period. Multivariate logistic regression analysis revealed that the outcome of patients was associated with lung infection, coagulation system dysfunction, staphylococcus aureus infection, and use of various treatments (epinephrine, norepinephrine, and the use of mechanical ventilation) after AKI development.


AKI occurred in approximately half of the critically ill patients admitted to ICU. The site and type of infections, as well as the use of vasopressor agents, were associated with the outcome.
