A 75-year man is evaluated in the emergency department for nausea, vomiting, and weakness. He has no history of kidney disease. BUN is 160 mg/dL, and serum creatinine is 13 mg/dL. Ultrasound examination reveals small kidneys without obstruction or stones. You believe hemodialysis should be initiated promptly and expect the patient to need chronic dialytic therapy.
