Cardiovascular pharmacology in acute care settings involves a variety of medications ranging from vasopressors and inotropes to inodilators and inhaled pulmonary vasodilators. Listen in on this podcast as I discuss how I use agents like epinephrine, norepinephrine, vasopressin, milrinone, phenylephrine, calcium, methylene blue, and more in my practice.

Keep in mind that I individualize everything for my patients based on their clinical situations, so I won’t be giving any tips on doses or combinations of medications since these vary tremendously.

  1. Great podcast. I am on 1st year of CT residency in Germany and this is beneficial stuff. Thank you a lot! Can not wait for next podcast! I would like to ask you for EchoTools app, do you have it for Android also or just for iOS?

    • Thank you so much for the kind words!

      Unfortunately I only have EchoTools for iOS. I’ve built the app as I (slowly) learn more about the Swift programming language through trial-and-error.

  2. This is great. Thank you. What Are your thoughts on epinephrine in postoperative period for patients with coronary artery disease after coronary artery bypass?

    • I think by that point, they should be considered “revascularized”, and if they need epinephrine for whatever reason, I’ll give it. I use it often as small boluses during cardiac surgery and as an infusion in patients with prolonged cardiopulmonary bypass runs, low ejection fractions, etc.

  3. Thanks a lot doc. Very brief and practical. Cant wait for your next podcast.
