In brief: A lot of information

acute renal failure when the kidney get insulted right now, and it has the potential to turn around,and becomes normal again.
end stage renal disease is when the kidney are no longer working,to the point it required dialysis,and there is no hope of turning around,beside dialysis,patient might need a kidney transplant. not everybody on life support required induced coma,unless the problem in brain.

In brief: They are sedated

when someone is put on a ventilator , we usually keep him sedated , the level of sedation varies based on the underlying illness, but in most cases we keep it light so the person is able to open eyes and communicate.
