Dr. McIlroy’s Research

Does varying the chloride content of intravenous fluid alter the risk of acute kidney injury after cardiac surgery?

Dr. McIlroy’s current research and teaching focuses on perioperative acute kidney injury, anesthesia for cardiac surgery, perioperative management of patients with pacemakers, and critiquing medical literature.

Incorporating oliguria into the diagnostic criteria for acute kidney injury after on-pump cardiac surgery: impact on incidence and outcomes.
McIlroy DR, Argenziano M, Farkas D, Umann T, Sladen RN.

Consensus definitions represent an important step toward defining the epidemiology of acute kidney injury (AKI). However, the oliguric component of these definitions remains of uncertain impact and utility after cardiac surgery. The authors sought to define the specific impact of oliguric criteria, both alone and in combination with serum creatinine criteria, on the observed incidence of AKI and associated adverse outcomes following adult cardiac surgery.
