Acute kidney injury

Acute kidney injury (AKI), previously called acute renal failure (ARF), is an abrupt loss of kidney function that develops within 7 days.

Acute tubular necrosis

Acute tubular necrosis (ATN) is a medical condition involving the death of tubular epithelial cells that form the renal tubules of the kidneys.

Azotemia

Azotemia (azot, "nitrogen" + -emia, "blood condition") is a medical condition characterized by abnormally high levels of nitrogen-containing compounds (such as urea, creatinine, various body waste compounds, and other nitrogen-rich compounds) in the blood.

Creatinine

Creatinine (or; from flesh) is a breakdown product of creatine phosphate in muscle, and is usually produced at a fairly constant rate by the body (depending on muscle mass).

Diuretic

A diuretic is any substance that promotes diuresis, the increased production of urine.

Oliguria

Oliguria or hypouresis (both names from roots meaning "not enough urine") is the low output of urine.

Renal failure index

The urinary indices are the fractional sodium excretion (FENa) index and the renal failure index (RFI).
