Show Notes

Emergency medicine, critical care, and acute care providers evaluate, resuscitate, and manage patients with shock on a daily basis.  Despite initial efforts, a select number of patients are refractory to fluid and vasopressor administration.  In this podcast, we discuss a rationale approach to vasopressor administration, along with several rescue therapies for the patient with refractory vasodilatory shock.
