Intensive care patients with multiple organ dysfunction syndrome often show renal failure with the need for hemofiltration. Resolving renal failure after cessation of hemofiltration may or may not be accompanied by oliguria. Whether or not the administration of diuretics at that moment is appropriate is not known. The study randomises between furosemide or placebo when hemofiltration is stopped. Study endpoint is recovery of renal function.
