Automated, accurate urine output and intra-abdominal pressure monitoring can be used to personalize blood pressure management for critically ill patients to avoid damage to organs from over or under resuscitation.

13,014 patient study on Sepsis showed that urine output was more useful than SIRS criteria themselves.
