Renal Perioperative Risk Factors: What Nephrology Nurses Need to Know When Their Patients Go to the Operating Room
Alice Luehr, DNP, RN, CNN

This session will examine what can occur during surgery, including drugs commonly used, fluid management, and what circulating nurses are watching for during the procedure. Strategies to protect the kidneys during surgery as well as collaborative strategies to optimize outcomes for patients with kidney disease/AKI during this critical period will be shared.
What Are You Made Of? The Genetics for Nephrology Care
Mary Schira, PhD, APRN, ACNP-BC
Genetic makeup is recognized increasingly as a tool to identify treatment for various health issues, such as determining an appropriate antidepressant medication. Other examples include genetic testing for cytomegalovirus infection and ganciclovir resistance in transplants as well as testing for primary versus secondary membranous nephrology. This session will explore current uses – and the future potential – of genetic testing for disease management.
