Rationale for an organized approach to acute renal failure (ARF). An organized approach to the patient with ARF is necessary, as this disorder is common and is caused by several insults that operate via numerous mechanisms. Successful amelioration of the renal failure state depends on early identification and treatment of the cause of the disorder [1-7]. If not diagnosed and treated and reversed quickly, it can lead to substantial morbidity and mortality.
