In brief: Oliguria

Oliguria or low urine output is defined as less than approximately 350 cc/day.
Anuria or absence of urine is less than 50 cc day. Either of these conditions can occur in hypovolemic shock. Treatment of this condition usually requires large amounts of IV fluids and i usually would like to see at least 100/cc of urine per hour to indicate adequate repletion of volume losses.
