Show Notes

Hemodynamic management of patients with cardiogenic shock centers on vasopressors, inotropes, and mechanical circulatory devices.  With respect to inotropic medications, there is little data to guide optimal management and selection of agents.  In this podcast we discuss the results of a recent trial that compared milrinone with dobutamine for patients with cardiogenic shock.  Which agent was the winner?

Does the Timing of Source Control in Sepsis Make a Difference?

The emergency department resuscitation of patients with sepsis focuses on early recognition, timely administration of appropriate antibiotics, appropriate fluid resuscitation, early vasopressor initiation for patients with sepsis-induced hypoperfusion, and hemodynamic monitoring.  Source control is also an important component in the resuscitation of patients with sepsis.  Though current guidelines identify source control as a “best practice” the optimal timing of source control remains uncertain.  In this podcast, we discuss a recent study that evaluated the timing of source control with mortality in patients with community-acquired sepsis.

COVID-19 Update - March 2020

In December 2019 a novel coronavirus (now named COVID-19) was identified as responsible for a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, China. As of March 2020, over 50 countries have identified patients who have tested (+) for COVID-19, with over 90,000 identified cases and more than 3000 deaths to date. As the discussion regarding COVID-19 rapidly evolves, it is important for clinicians to prepare locally and to review standards for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. In this podcast, we review the latest information on identification, diagnosis, and treatment of patients with COVID-19 infection.
