Show Notes

Current guidelines for many critical illnesses recommend targeting a MAP of 65 mm Hg, with consideration of higher MAPs in older patients with chronic HTN. Recent literature, however, suggests increased mortality in older patients who are exposed to larger quantities of vasopressor medications.  In this podcast, we do a deep dive into the recently published 65 Trial, which sought to evaluate the effect of permissive hypotension in older patients with vasodilatory hypotension.
