Correct

- Monitor I&O

- Daily weights

- Fluid restriction

- 1 gm NaCl tabs q6hrs

- Head CT with contrast

Rationale

Monitoring I&O, daily weights, and fluid restriction are all important for a patient with AKI. However, administering salt tablets are not, and will make things worse. Additionally, the contrast given with CT scans is contraindicated, as it will worsen kidney failure. Nothing in the question would lead to a head CT being clinically indicated.
