Exploration of the Relationship Among Key Risk Factors of Acute Kidney Injury for Elderly Patients Considering Covid-19 (Frontiers in Medicine)
 


Background: Previous systematic reviews and meta-analyses supported the relationship between frailty and risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) in elderly patients. However, few studies evaluated proactive management to wear down AKI risk in such frail populations.Purpose: To understand how AKI risk factors might influence each other and to identify the source factors for clinical decision aids.Methods: This study uses the decision-making trial and evaluation laboratory (DEMATEL) method to establish influential network-relationship diagrams (INRDs) to form the AKI risk assessment model for the elderly.Results: Based on the DEMATEL approach, the results of INRD identified the six key risk factors: comorbidity, malignancy, diabetes, creatinine, estimated glomerular filtration rate, and nutritional assessment. (The statistical significance confidence is 98.423%, which is higher than 95%; the gap error is 1.577%, which is lower than 5%). After considering COVID-19 as an additional risk factor in comorbidity, the INRD revealed a similar influential relationship among the essential aspects.Conclusion: While evaluating the geriatric population, physicians need to pay attention to patients` comorbidities and nutritional assessment; also, they should note patients` creatinine values and glomerular filtration rate. Physicians could establish a preliminary observation index and then design a series of preventive guidelines to reduce the incidence of AKI risk for the elderly.
