Topics from this paper

Pediatric cardiogenic shock: Current perspectives
TLDR
As cardiogenic shock in children carries a high risk of morbidity and mortality, emphasis should be placed on expedient management to arrest the pathophysiological cascade and avoid hypotension. Expand
Vasoactive support in the optimization of post-cardiac arrest hemodynamic status: from pharmacology to clinical practice.
TLDR
Careful and frequent serial evaluation of the patient is important primarily to assess volume status and adequacy of circulatory support and because inotropes and vasopressors have the potential to induce life-threatening side-effects. Expand
WSES/GAIS/SIS-E/WSIS/AAST global clinical pathways for patients with intra-abdominal infections
TLDR
The aim of the document is to promote global standards of care in IAIs providing guidance to clinicians by describing reasonable approaches to the management of IAIs. Expand
A machine-learning approach to predicting hypotensive events in ICU settings
TLDR
This study demonstrates the promising potential of machine-learning algorithms in the real-time prediction of hypotensive events in ICU settings based on short-term physiological history with 94% accuracy, 85% sensitivity and 96% specificity in predicting hypotension within 30 min of the events. Expand
Acute Gastrointestinal Bleeding: The Role of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology
TLDR
An overview to the initial management, classification, diagnosis, and treatment of acute gastrointestinal bleeding with emphasis on the use of radiology modalities and intervention is provided. Expand
Role of Clinical Pharmacist in Medication Management of Inotropes and Vasopressors in Intensive Care Unit
TLDR
There is an increased effect of drugs on hemodynamic instability based on mean arterial pressure and heart rate and interventions made by a clinical pharmacist improves medication safety in critically ill patients by the safe and effective use of inotropes and vasopressors. Expand
Transglutaminase 2 Has Metabolic and Vascular Regulatory Functions Revealed by In Vivo Activation of Alpha1-Adrenergic Receptor
TLDR
The in vivo effects of the α1-adrenergic receptor agonist phenylephrine comparing responses in wild type and TG2-/- mice suggest that TG2 has important regulatory functions in alpha1-adsenergic receptor-mediated metabolic processes and vascular functions. Expand
A Machine Learning Approach to Predict Hypotensive Events in ICU Settings
TLDR
A novel evaluation method is proposed to assess the algorithm performance as a function of time at every timestamp within 30 minutes prior to hypotension, revealing the promising potential of the machine learning algorithms in real-time prediction of hypotensive events in ICU setting based on short-term physiological history. Expand
Inotropes And Vasopressors
Vasopressors and inotropes are medications used to create vasoconstriction or increase cardiac contractility, respectively, in patients with shock. The hallmark of shock is decreased perfusion toExpand
Vasoactive Agents for Adult Septic Shock: An Update and Review
TLDR
Norepinephrine is the first-line vasopressor of choice for septic shock, though secondary vasopressors can be used depending on the patient's circumstances. Expand

Implementation of a bundle of quality indicators for the early management of severe sepsis and septic shock is associated with decreased mortality*
TLDR
Implementation of a severe sepsis bundle using a quality improvement feedback to modify physician behavior in the emergency department setting was feasible and was associated with decreased in-hospital mortality. Expand
Vasopressin: Mechanisms of action on the vasculature in health and in septic shock
TLDR
The pathophysiologic mechanism underlying vasopressin hypersensitivity in septic shock is probably multifactorial and it is doubtful that this phenomenon is merely the consequence of replacing a deficiency, but further translational research is required to improve the understanding. Expand
Before–after study of a standardized hospital order set for the management of septic shock*
TLDR
It is found that the implementation of a standardized order set for the management of septic shock in the emergency department was associated with statistically more rigorous fluid resuscitation of patients, greater administration of appropriate initial antibiotic treatment, and a lower 28-day mortality. Expand
Terlipressin: Vasopressin Analog and Novel Drug for Septic Shock
TLDR
Tyrlipressin is a promising investigational medication for treatment of septic shock and its use cannot be recommended in lieu of vasopressin at this time. Expand
Meta-Analysis: Low-Dose Dopamine Increases Urine Output but Does Not Prevent Renal Dysfunction or Death
TLDR
A systematic review and meta-analysis of low-dose dopamine was conducted by using a comprehensive search strategy to determine its effect on a broad range of clinical and renal physiologic outcomes and adverse events. Expand
Practice parameters for hemodynamic support of sepsis in adult patients: 2004 update
TLDR
An organized approach to the hemodynamic support of sepsis was formulated, and specific recommendations for fluid resuscitation, vasopressor therapy, and inotropic therapy of septic in adult patients were promulgated. Expand
The Role of Vasopressin in Vasodilatory Septic Shock
TLDR
The results show that starting vasopressin in patients with septic shock increases systemic vascular resistance and arterial blood pressure, thus reducing the dosage requirements of adrenergic agents, and vasopressingin therapy should not be started as first‐line therapy. Expand
Bad medicine: low-dose dopamine in the ICU.
TLDR
It is concluded that there is no justification for the use of low-dose dopamine administration in the critically ill because of the lack of renal efficacy and evidence that low- dose dopamine administration worsens splanchnic oxygenation, impairs GI function, impair the endocrine and immunologic systems, and blunts ventilatory drive. Expand
Early Goal-Directed Therapy in the Treatment of Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock
TLDR
This study randomly assigned patients who arrived at an urban emergency department with severe sepsis or septic shock to receive either six hours of early goal-directed therapy or standard therapy (as a control) before admission to the intensive care unit. Expand
Use of dopamine in acute renal failure: A meta-analysis
TLDR
The use of low-dose dopamine for the treatment or prevention of acute renal failure cannot be justified on the basis of available evidence and should be eliminated from routine clinical use. Expand
