Show Notes

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.
