Listen now
Description
Dr. Brady, an ICU intensivist and the director of the critical care medicine clerkship at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), discusses vasopressors and inotropes with RTL host, Dr. Navin Kumar. Together, they use the previous episode's (Ep. 71: Approach to Shock) case of an elderly patient with suspected distributive shock secondary to urosepsis as a framework to approach pressor requirements. Dr. Brady walks through establishing access, how to choose a pressor based on adrenergic physiology, and emphasizes when to take a diagnostic timeout in the ICU.
