A fatal coincidence could occur by chance

A model for kidney failure in Oncology

An oncological patient can be treated with several drugs at the same time if we think in chemotherapy or in another drugs to treat side effects  such as neutropenia or pain-killers. Many drugs are nephrotoxic and kidney failure can appears easily.

Moreover, during the stay at the hospital a patient can get a CAT scan with a iodine contrast to evaluate the response of the tumor and this can be the last and definitive event for a kidney failure.

COMMENT: Only thinking in the whole process of attention to the patient and establishing “cognitive and systemic alarms” can help to protect our patient.
