Restrictive Fluid Resuscitation in Sepsis? The CLASSIC Trial

IVF administration is central to the management of patients with sepsis.  Though the Surviving Sepsis Campaign recently downgraded its recommendation on the amount of initial fluid administration, there are currently no recommendations on a fluid strategy for septic patients who continue to demonstrate hypoperfusion after the initial fluid bolus.  In this podcast we discuss the recently published CLASSIC Trial, which compared a restrictive fluid strategy to standard care in adult patients admitted to the ICU with sepsis.

What is the Optimal SpO2 Target in Vented Patients?

Approximately 3 million critically ill patients are intubated and initiated on mechanical ventilation each year in the United States. A critical component of mechanical ventilation is the adjustment of FiO2 to maintain adequate arterial oxygen saturation.  However, the optimal oxygenation target in critically ill adult patients receiving mechanical ventilation remains uncertain. In this podcast we discuss a recently published study, the PILOT Trial, that evaluated low, intermediate, and high oxygenation targets in critically ill patients.
