Fractional Excretion of Sodium (FENa) = (PCr * UNa) / (PNa * UCr)
- PCr stands for plasma creatinine.
- PNa stands for plasma sodium.
- UCR stands for urine creatinine.
- UNa stands for urine sodium.
Interpretation of results
Prerenal cause: FENa <1%
Intrinsic Renal cause: FENa 1-4%
Postrenal cause: FENa >4%
