The purpose of this study is to compare the classical tactics in the treatment of septic shock (dopamine, noradrenalin and dobutamine) to the use of vasopressin as first choice pressor.
Vasopressin seems to be an interesting alternative in the treatment of septic shock. To this date, available studies have showed that it could correct hyperkinetic syndrome and vasoplegia in septic shocks without noticeable side effect. It as been demonstrated that vasopressin improves renal function, as no effect on digestive organs and as no metabolic effect.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Shock, Septic||Drug: vasopressin||Phase 2 Phase 3|
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||20 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||Comparative Prospective Study of Vasopressin and Catecholamine in Septic Shock|
|Study Start Date :||July 2000|
- To compare the efficiency of vasopressine to the standard and usual treatment of septic shock on the reverse of the hemodynamic criterion of septic shock
- To compare these two categories of treatment on:
- tonometric parameters
- renal function
- in term of tolerance: metabolic effects (increase in lactate and glycaemia), cardiac effects (tachycardia being defined as a heart rate increase of 15%), increase of cardiac enzymes (troponine, CK, CK-MB), and cutanuous vasoconstriction.
