Epinephrine in Sepsis

PulmCrit (EMCrit)
April 25, 2016 - By Josh Farkas
"Summary: The Bullet
  • Epinephrine and norepinephrine are both acceptable, evidence-based approaches to hemodynamic support in septic shock.
  • Individual patient responsiveness to vasopressors is variable and unpredictable.
  • Some patients respond better to epinephrine than norepinephrine.
  • For patients who are not responding well to norepinephrine, it is reasonable to empirically trial a low dose of epinephrine (“epinephrine challenge”)."
