In the ICU, many patients are either admitted in shock or develop shock during the course of their disease. Despite recognizing that shock is a common ICU issue, it remains a high cause of mortality in our patients. It is essential to quickly evaluate and identify the type of shock and initiate the appropriate treatment course. In this engaging presentation, you will learn about the most common types of shock and their associated clinical signs. As new methods of evaluation and treatment are imperative as we work to increase survival in these patients, this CE offering will focus on identification and novel approaches to treatment of different types of shock – what has worked and what hasn’t.
