Paper type

Systematic Review and meta-analysis


Kellum JA, Decker M.
Use of dopamine in acute renal failure: a meta-analysis.
Critical Care Medicine 2001; 29: 1526-1531.

Major Finding

The use of low-dose dopamine for the treatment or prevention of acute renal failure cannot be justified on the basis of available evidence and should be eliminated from routine clinical use.

Point for discussion:

The paper that ended the dopamine for ARF debate. Is there ANY role for dopamine on a modern ICU?
