The study was conducted by Northwell Health, the largest health institution in New York state.

One of the authors of the research, Dr.. "We saw that 5 percent of the 449 patients who came for treatment developed an acute kidney failure problem," said Kaner Jhaveri.

It is stated that the problem of kidney failure occurs especially in the first 24 hours after starting treatment. It is stated that 37,3 percent of patients experienced this problem in the first 24 hours.

Dr. Jhaveri notes that 1000 percent of 90 patients connected to the respirator have seen a kidney failure problem.
