Catecholamine is used in patients with septic shock to augment hemodynamics and achieve goal mean arterial pressure. Ludwig H. Lin, MD, is joined by Gretchen L. Sacha BCCCP, PharmD, to discuss this retrospective observational study to evaluate the associations of catecholamine dose, lactate concentration, and timing from shock onset at vasopressin initiation with in-hospital mortality. (Sacha G, et al. Crit Care Med. 2022;50:614-623). Dr. Sacha is a critical care clinical specialist at Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. This podcast is sponsored by Sound Physicians.
