Overview

Various parameters like fractional sodium excretion, urinary sodium concentration, urine osmolality and U/P creatinine ratio have been used to diagnose acute renal failure. The fractional sodium excretion is identifies as the most effective non-invasive test in formulating the differential diagnosis of acute renal failure [1].
