Push dose pressors

Eric Dryver, David Larsson, Ulrika Pahlm
Emergency Medicine became a full-fledged speciality in Sweden in 2015. This prospective study analyzed the safety and implementation of Emergency Physician-administered propofol to sedate patients with hemodynamically stable atrial fibrillation prior to cardioversion. During the first 1.5 years, 321 sedations were carried out at Lund's Emergency Department by Emergency Physicians or senior residents. In two cases, the oxygen saturation dipped below 90% before responding to simple measures. In 12 cases, the systolic blood pressure dipped below 90 mmHg, and in two cases patients were administered a push-dose pressor...

PURPOSE: Evaluate push dose vasopressor (PDP) practice patterns, efficacy, and safety in critically ill patients. METHODS: Critically ill patients receiving phenylephrine or ephedrine PDP from November 2015-March 2017 were included. Patient demographics, medication administration details, vital signs pre- and post-administration, adverse effects, and medications errors were collected. Descriptive data are presented and comparisons were made with paired samples t-test, Wilcoxon Rank Sum and Chi-squared analysis or Fisher's Exact Test as appropriate...

No outcomes data of this practice exist to demonstrate benefits over traditional continuous infusion of vasopressors. Use of bolus-dose vasopressors in the ED setting raises a number of patient safety concerns, and misuse and errors in the preparation and administration of bolus-dose vasopressors may result in patient harm...
