Elevated bun and creatinine

The blood urea nitrogen or BUN is a blood test that measures the amount of urea nitrogen in the bloodstream. It reflects how well your kidneys are. When a person is dehydrated, false results might be obtained as BUN levels increase when blood is concentrated. Elevated BUN levels indicate dehydration, excessive protein intake and impaired renal function. Low BUN levels indicate over hydration, liver damage and malnutrition.

Creatinine is a waste product produced by muscle metabolism. Kidneys filter creatinine to be excreted through the urine and the renal function is reflected. Elevated levels indicate renal impairment. The opposite happens for urinary creatinine clearance; during renal impairment, urinary creatinine is extremely low. Measuring urinary creatinine clearance during unilateral kidney impairment is insignificant as the healthy kidney can still excrete creatinine through the urine.

Mean Arterial Pressure is necessary to be above 65 for perfusion of the vital organs, if it falls below the patient may be symptomatic to include LAB values being elevated like the BUN and Creatinine which are specific to the kidneys.  Low blood pressures should always be calculated and taken manually to be assessed further and alway assess you patients baseline Mean Arterial Blood Pressure

Hepatorenal Syndrome... Seen in Patients with Advanced Liver Disease, cirrhosis, and/or Portal Hypertension with Elevated BUN/Creatinine... Precipitated by GI bleeds (from varices)... FeNa less than 1% (urine Na less than 10 mEq/L)... Clean Urine, No RBC's, protein, or casts in the urine... Lack of improvement in renal function with IV Fluids... The Renal Injury is due to RENAL HYPOPERFUSION... Occurs due to increased Nitric Oxide causing systemic vasodilation
