Dopamine and enteral feeding


Recommended Posts

High dose dopamine is known to cause vasoconstriction of the arteries all over the body including the gut vessels. once the baby is hemodynamic stable on low or moderate dose of dopamine ie not exceeding 10 microgram/kg/min i do start the baby on minimal enteral feeding ( trophic feeding that does not excced 20ml/kg/day ) but i will not upgrade the volume of the feeding until the baby is off dopamine or the dose is less than 5 microgram/kg/min -that is our policy of feeding sick preterm
