Outcome of inotropic therapy: is less always more?

Nielsen, Dorthe Viemose and Algotsson, Lars LU (2015) In Current Opinion in Anaesthesiology 28(2). p.159-164
Abstract
Positive inotropic agents are widely used in the management of the critical ill patient presenting with low cardiac output state. Different inotropic agents are available, and different effects on hemodynamic endpoints may be recognized, but data on relevant clinical endpoints are scarce. A growing body of literature suggests that overuse of inotropes may have detrimental effects on cardiomyocytes, resulting in an increased risk of morbidity and mortality. The present review will summarize recent literature, focusing on outcome studies among adult patients related to use of inotropes in different clinical settings.
