Vasopressors are often used early in septic shock to improve organ perfusion, but high doses increase adverse effects such a tachyarrhythmias and ischemia. A combination of products targeting different systems involved in blood pressure regulation may mitigate these adverse effects by decreasing vasopressor consumption. However, no standard of care exists, and the assessment of efficacy and safety of the adjunctive products available in this setting is complex. The presenter will discuss multimodal strategies for the management of hypotension in refractory septic shock, baseline information and a review of primary literature. Because an increased number of ongoing therapies may be involved in septic shock management, approaches to weaning therapies once the patient
stabilizes and improves will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives for Pharmacists & Nurses   |  At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify appropriate candidates to receive adjunctive agents for refractory septic shock.
  2. Recall the efficacy and safety of adjunctive agents used for refractory septic shock.
  3. Recognize a patient-specific multimodal hypotension treatment regimen.
