Judith Jacobi, PharmD, BCPS, FCCM, discusses drug shortages in the intensive care unit and how such shortages affect critical care patients and those requiring anesthesia. She discusses reasons for various drug shortages, the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s recent participation in an information summit on the matter, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s limited ability to help resolve the situation. In a robust and insightful conversation, Jacobi addresses the potential unintended consequences of shortages and the future of drug availability. Jacobi is a clinical pharmacy specialist at Methodist Hospital/Clarian Health in Indianapolis, Indiana. She is also the immediate past president of the Society of Critical Care Medicine.
