Abstract

On May 12, 2008, a disastrous earthquake scaled 8.0 Richter hit Wenchuan, Sichuan province in China. Treating the acute kidney injury caused by crush syndrome in survivals of the earthquake has been a big challenge to the nephrologists. In this paper, we shared our experiences on the multi-disciplinary collaboration in management of acute kidney injury caused by crush syndrome. In addition to surgical therapy for crush injury and compartment syndrome and the renal replacement therapy for acute renal injury and its related complications, the early multi-disciplinary collaboration including rehabilitation, mental health care, infection control and ICU also contributed greatly to the successful treatment of the victims of the earthquake.
