PMID:  12113327     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
CONCLUSION: The infusion of epinephrine increased the MABP and the heart rate without decreasing urine output in VLBWI with hypotension not responding to a dopamine infusion up to 15 microg kg(-1) per minute. A potential adverse effect was an increase in metabolic acidosis.
