An increase in renal O2Ex means that renal DO2 has decreased in relation to renal VO2, i. e., renal oxygenation is impaired, and vice versa... Prasad et al. demonstrated in conscious volunteers that 20 mg of furosemide increased medullary oxygenation, using the blood oxygen level-dependent magnetic resonance imaging technique (BOLD MRI)... In contrast, acetazolamide, which inhibits tubular reabsorption of the proximal tubules in the cortex and which does not affect medullary PO2 in experimental studies, did not affect medullary oxygenation... Furosemide increased fractional excretion of sodium (excreted sodium/filtered sodium) from 2% to 25% and caused a 10-fold increase in urine flow because of a 28% decrease in tubular sodium reabsorption... These changes were in turn associated with a 23% decrease in renal VO2... Thus, furosemide decreased renal O2Ex and improved renal oxygenation as renal blood flow was not significantly affected by the diuretic... Redfors et al. recently studied the effects of low-dose (2-4 μg/kg/min) dopamine on renal blood flow, GFR, tubular sodium reabsorption, renal VO2 and the renal oxygen demand/supply relationship in post-cardiac surgery patients... Postoperative AKI in this group of patients is considered a consequence of impaired renal DO2, in turn caused by intra-operative hypotension and hemodilution-induced anemia, as well as perioperative low cardiac output... In spite of a normalization of cardiac index (CI) with inotropic treatment with or without intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP), renal oxygenation was severely impaired in patients with early AKI, as demonstrated by a 70% relative increase in renal O2Ex, compared to uncomplicated post-cardiac surgery patients with normal renal function This was, in turn, caused by a pronounced renal vasoconstriction and a 40% lower renal blood flow, in combination with a renal VO2 that was not significantly different from the control group, despite the 60% decrease in GFR and renal tubular sodium reabsorption (Table 3)... Figure 4 shows the close correlation between GFR and renal VO2 in patients with early AKI after cardiac surgery versus those undergoing uncomplicated surgery with no renal impairment... At a target MAP of 75 mm Hg, renal DO2 (13%), GFR (27%) and urine flow were higher and renal O2Ex was lower (7.4%) compared with a target MAP of 60 mm Hg... However, the renal variables did not differ when compared at target MAPs of 75 and 90 mm Hg (Figure 8)... ANP is ideally suited for treatment of ischemic AKI, as it preferentially dilates the preglomerular resistance vessels; this will increase GFR but also renal blood flow, meeting the increased oxygen demand of the medulla by an increase in renal DO2... Mannitol increases renal blood flow and GFR in clinical ischemic AKI most likely by endothelial and epithelial de-swelling effects.

Mentions: Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) is a renal vasodilator, which causes a balanced 30-40% increase in both renal blood flow and GFR in patients with early ischemic AKI after complicated cardiac surgery [39]. Although, the effects of ANP on renal oxygenation have not been studied, it is less likely that ANP would impair renal oxygenation because of its preferential action on the preglomerular resistance vessels. This is further supported by the findings from a prospective, randomized, blinded trial by Swärd et al., who showed that infusion of ANP enhanced renal excretory function, decreased the probability of dialysis and improved dialysis-free survival in early, ischemic AKI after complicated cardiac surgery [40] (Figures 5 and 6).
