The BaSICS Trial - Implications for Fluid Resuscitation

The administration of IVFs is nearly universal in critically ill patients.  In recent years, several studies have suggested improved outcomes with the use of balanced crystalloids solutions in contrast to 0.9% NS.  In this podcast, we discuss the recently published BaSICS Trial that evaluated Plasma-Lyte 148 with 0.9% NS in critically ill patients.  Does this study provide practice-changing evidence to make that switch?

Vasopressors & The Older Patient - The 65 Trial

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.
