Vasopressor Management in Septic Shock: Overview & Approach

Vasopressors are essential in managing septic shock by maintaining adequate perfusion pressure and organ perfusion. Initial management involves prompt recognition of septic shock and fluid resuscitation. Norepinephrine is typically the first-line vasopressor, acting through alpha-adrenergic receptors to increase systemic vascular resistance. If hypotension persists despite norepinephrine, a second-line vasopressor like vasopressin or epinephrine may be added. Dosing and titration aim to achieve a target mean arterial pressure of 65 mmHg or higher.
