Metrics details. Vasopressors are commonly applied to restore and maintain blood pressure in patients with sepsis. We aimed to evaluate the current practice and therapeutic goals regarding vasopressor use in septic shock as a basis for future studies and to provide some recommendations on their use.

Current use of vasopressors in septic shock
Join NursingCenter to get uninterrupted access to this Article. Patients presenting with shock have inadequate perfusion of tissues and lack adequate oxygen delivery to vital organs. Shock must be treated immediately to prevent multisystem organ failure and death. The components of blood pressure are cardiac output and systemic vascular resistance SVR. Therefore, patients presenting with shock will have either an inadequate cardiac index CI or a low SVR due to arterial vasodilation or rarely both.
Shock is a life-threatening, generalized state of circulatory failure resulting in the inability to deliver oxygen in peripheral tissues to meet their demands. More specifically, the state of shock is the result of one of the four following mechanisms. The first one is the decrease of the venous return due to the loss of the circulating volume hemorrhagic shock 3. The second one is the inability of the heart to function as a pump due to the loss of contractility or abnormal electrical activity such as arrhythmias cardiogenic shock 4. The third one is obstruction due to pulmonary embolism, tension pneumothorax and cardiac tamponade obstructive shock 1. The fourth one is loss of vascular tone due to maldistribution of blood septic, anaphylactic and neurogenic shock 5 - 7. As far as the shocked patient is concerned, the earlier the diagnosis, the better the outcome; it is of crucial importance to identify early the presence of the state of shock 8.
Metrics details. Treatment decisions on critically ill patients with circulatory shock lack consensus. In an international survey, we aimed to evaluate the indications, current practice, and therapeutic goals of inotrope therapy in the treatment of patients with circulatory shock. A total of 14 questions focused on the profile of respondents, the triggering factors, first-line choice, dosing, timing, targets, additional treatment strategy, and suggested effect of inotropes. In addition, a group of 42 international ESICM experts was asked to formulate recommendations for the use of inotropes based on 11 questions.

Patients in the intensive care unit frequently develop low-output syndromes due to cardiac dysfunction, myocardial injury and activation of inflammatory cascades.

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 to vital organs, resulting in multiorgan dysfunction and eventually death.
Inotropes, vasopressors and other vasoactive agents
International guidelines recommend dopamine or norepinephrine as first-line vasopressor agents in septic shock. Phenylephrine, epinephrine, vasopressin and terlipressin are considered second-line agents. Our objective was to assess the evidence for the efficiency and safety of all vasopressors in septic shock. Systematic review and meta-analysis.
The Portuguese Journal of Cardiology, the official journal of the Portuguese Society of Cardiology, was founded in with the aim of keeping Portuguese cardiologists informed through the publication of scientific articles on areas such as arrhythmology and electrophysiology, cardiovascular surgery, intensive care, coronary artery disease, cardiovascular imaging, hypertension, heart failure and cardiovascular prevention. The Journal is a monthly publication with high standards of quality in terms of scientific content and production. Since it has been published in English as well as Portuguese, which has widened its readership abroad.
