Weaning Pressors

Uploaded on Tuesday 22 January 2013


The ICU is where the sickest and most expensive patients reside in a hospital. In this video, Scott Roth MD describes how direct visualization of th heart enables you to get directly to the cause of a patient's hemodynamic instability and effectively wean the patient off of support faster. This benefits not only the patient but also the hospital itself with reduce ICU LOS and reduced time on ventilators or mechanical circulatory support. The net result is that weaning patients off of pressors faster often allows the intensivist to get the patient out of the ICU faster.
