SCCM Pod-458 CCM: Association of Catecholamine in Patients With Septic Shock

Catecholamine is used in patients with septic shock to augment hemodynamics and achieve goal mean arterial pressure. Ludwig H. Lin, MD, is joined by Gretchen L. Sacha BCCCP, PharmD, to discuss this retrospective observational study to evaluate the associations of catecholamine dose, lactate concentration, and timing from shock onset at vasopressin initiation with in-hospital mortality. This podcast is sponsored by Sound Physicians.


SCCM Pod-450 Surviving Sepsis Campaign: Long-Term Goals of Care

Patients who survive sepsis may be left with short- and long-term problems that need to be addressed. This podcast discusses the implementation of initiatives for preventing impairments due to sepsis, challenges faced by survivors of sepsis, and difficulties of matching care to patient and family goals of care.


Concise Critical Appraisal: Cardiac Ultrasound in Pediatric Septic Shock Assessment

How can clinical information gleaned from focused cardiac ultrasound (FCU) be used to augment clinical assessments in children with suspected septic shock? This month’s Concise Critical Appraisal analyzes a study published in Pediatric Critical Care Medicine that sought to show how often a clinician’s hemodynamic characterization of a child with septic shock was altered by FCU and to further validate an expert-developed algorithm for these assessments.


SCCM Pod-406 Surviving Sepsis Campaign Children's Guidelines

Margaret M. Parker, MD, MCCM, and Scott L. Weiss, MD, FCCM, discuss the release of "Surviving Sepsis Campaign International Guidelines for the Management of Septic Shock and Sepsis-Associated Organ Dysfunction in Children," published in the February 2020 issue of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine (Weiss S, et al. Pediatr Crit Care Med. 2020;21(2);e52-e106).


SCCM Pod-407 Life Following Pediatric Septic Shock

Margaret M. Parker, MD, MCCM, and Jerry J. Zimmerman, MD, PhD, FCCM, talk about the trajectory of long-term mortality and significant health-related quality of life disability among children encountering septic shock.


SCCM Pod-VCCR6 Vasopressor Selection in Septic Shock

Sean P. Kane, PharmD, BCPS, speaks with Scott T. Benken, PharmD, BCPS-AQ Cardiology about vasopressor selection in septic shock.


SCCM Pod-VCCR2 New Onset Atrial Fibrillation in Septic Shock

Sean P. Kane, PharmD, BCPS, speaks with Ishaq Lat, PharmD, about new onset atrial fibrillation in septic shock. In the epsiode, the issue of rate versus rhythm control is discussed as well as the need for anticoagulation among this patient population.


Concise Critical Appraisal: PERSEVERE Biomarkers in Predicting AKI in Pediatric Septic Shock

Can the biomarkers identified in the Pediatric Sepsis Biomarker Risk Model (PERSEVERE II) be used to predict acute kidney injury and renal recovery in pediatric septic shock? This Concise Critical Appraisal explores a study in which Stanski et al (Am J Respir Crit Care Med. 2020;201:848-855) sought to answer this question.
