The diagnostic function of the AKI prediction score for predicting AKI in critically-ill patients who underwent major non-cardiothoracic surgery was good.

The AKI prediction score could offer clinicians early identification of critically-ill surgical patients who are at risk of AKI from the start of ICU admission. Decision making for more aggressive treatment to prevent or to treat AKI may be guided by the score from the operative period or upon admission to ICU.
