Several experimental studies have shown that activated protein C improves microcirculation of various organs [42–44]. These effects may be mediated by inhibition of rolling/adhesion leucocytes to endothelium [42–44], perhaps by preserving endothelial glycocalyx . Similar effects were found in patients with septic shock receiving activated protein C . 7 Conclusions Microvascular alterations are frequent in critically ill patients, especially in patients with septic shock, and their severity has been shown to be associated with outcome.
2 Pathophysiology of Prerenal AKI Hypovolaemia (true or functional lack of circulating volume) leads to hypotension and secondary activation of cardiovascular baroreceptors, the sympathetic and renin-angiotensin-aldosterone systems, as well as to the release of various vasopressors, including vasopressin. During episodes of hypotension, glomerular ¿ltration rate (GFR) is maintained via vasodilatation of preglomerular arterioles and vasoconstriction of efferent arterioles. Failure of autoregulation in the setting of hypovolaemia will lead to prerenal kidney dysfunction.
