The effects of vasopressin on systemic hemodynamics in catecholamine-resistant septic and postcardiotomy shock: a retrospective analysis.


UNLABELLED We retrospectively investigated the effects of continuous arginine vasopressin (AVP) infusion on systemic hemodynamics, acid/base status, and laboratory variables in patients (mean age [mean +/- SD]= 66.3 +/- 10.1 yr) with catecholamine-resistant septic (n = 35) or postcardiotomy shock (n = 25). Hemodynamic and acid/base data were obtained before… (More)
