Oliguria as Predictive Biomarker of Acute Kidney Injury in Critically Ill Patients

This article (again Rinaldo Bellomo is a contributing author) follows-on from my previous post on renal vasoplegia, although it makes a different point:
That oliguria alone is a poor predictor of renal injury (and by inference pre-renal failure).
It is the haemodynamics that indicate if oliguria is likely to be pre-renal or not in nature.
In other words, the haemodynamics tells you more about the oliguria than the oliguria tells you about the haemodynamics! So you need not rush to volume resuscitate the oliguric patient whose haemodynamics are reasurring ().
