For much of the last four decades, low‐dose dopamine has been considered the drug of choice to treat and prevent renal failure in the intensive care unit (ICU). The multifactorial etiology of renal failure in the ICU and the presence of coexisting multisystem organ dysfunction make the design and execution of clinical trials to study this problem difficult. However, in the last decade, several meta‐analyses and one large randomized trial have all shown a lack of benefit of low‐dose dopamine in… Expand
