Dopamine is used for the correction of hemodynamic imbalances present in shock syndrome after MI (heart attack), trauma, endotoxic septicemia, open heart surgery, and renal failure or chronic cardiac decompensation (eg, CHF- congestive heart failure)

Adult dosage: IV Initial dose of 2 to 5 mcg/kg/min with incremental changes of 5 to 10 mcg/kg/min gradually until adequate response is noted. Most patients are maintained at less than 20 mcg/kg/min. If dosage exceeds 50 mcg/kg/min, assess renal function frequently.
