Answer

Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) guidelines suggest using a stage-based approach to management of AKI/ATN. [25]  The guidelines suggest that the following measures have no role in the prevention of AKI [25] :

  • Diuretics to prevent AKI
  • Diuretics to treat AKI, except in the management of volume overload
  • Low-dose dopamine to prevent or treat AKI
  • Fenoldopam to prevent or treat AKI
  • Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) to prevent or treat AKI
