Abstract

Inotropic agents are commonly used in critically ill patients. This heterogeneous group of drugs are potentially hazardous if used without a good understanding of cardiovascular physiology and pathophysiology and without due attention to some general principles for their use. We suggest guidelines for the administration of these agents in all clinical settings.
