Description

A systematic approach to the successful investigation and management of oliguria uses a reproducible method called the Rules of Three: consideration of three sources of olguria (postrenal, prerenal, and renal), three noninvasive tools for evaluation (history and physical examination, ultrasonography, and urinalysis with urinary electrolyte values), and three helpful clinical maxims. Constant application of this system provides clues to the presence of hidden but reversible postrenal and prerenal causes of oliguria. This approach also yields consistent and accurate results when used to evaluate azotemia and proteinuria
