Vasopressors and Inotropes for Shock Syndromes

Vasopressors and Inotropes for Shock Syndromes

Vasopressors and inotropes are cornerstones in the management of shock syndromes. Understanding vasopressors’ receptor activity and resultant pharmacological response enables clinicians to select the ideal vasopressor(s) for a patient suffering from shock. The following table outlines common vasopressors/inotropes and their general receptor activity profiles. Clinical efficacy is demonstrated primarily via targeted hemodynamic variables, while application to clinical practice remains variable and driven by expert opinion, patient physiology, and individual preference.
