Abstract

A systematic approach to oliguria in the ICU patient is mandatory due to the multifactorial etiology of this problem, potential to deteriorate to anuria, and need for renal replacement therapy. Timely diagnosis and prompt intervention will decrease morbidity and mortality from this potentially preventable problem. Mortality rate in patients with oliguria in the ICU is in excess of 50%.
