  • Inotropic Therapy in Sepsis Overview Sepsis is characterized by a hyperdynamic state, with normal-to-low blood pressure, normal-to-high cardiac index, and a low systemic vascular resistance. 1,43 Although cardiac output is usually maintained in the volume-resuscitated septic patient, a number of investigations4,125,126 have demonstrated that cardiac function is impaired.

  • Inotropic Therapy When adequately fluid resuscitated, most septic patients are hyperdynamic, but myocardial contractility, as assessed by ejection fraction, is impaired. 4 Some patients, especially those with preexisting cardiac dysfunction, may have decreased cardiac output and may require inotropic agents such as dobutamine, dopamine, and epinephrine.
