A Multicenter Observational Cohort Study of Angiotensin II in Shock.

Susan E Smith, Andrea S Newsome, Yanglin Guo, Jason Hecht, Michael T McCurdy, Michael A Mazzeffi, Jonathan H Chow, Shravan Kethireddy,

<h4>Introduction</h4>Angiotensin II (Ang-2) is a non-catecholamine vasopressor that targets the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system by agonism of the angiotensin type 1 receptor. Its utility as a vasopressor and a catecholamine-sparing agent was demonstrated in the pivotal ATHOS-3 trial, and numerous post-hoc analyses have shown reduced mortality in certain subsets of the population.<h4>Methods</h4>Consecutive ...

Jonathan H Chow, Marianne Wallis, Allison S Lankford, Zackary Chancer, Rolf N Barth, Joseph R Scalea, John C LaMattina, Michael A Mazzeffi, Michael T McCurdy,

Endothelial dysfunction is common in septic shock and has been shown to impair angiotensin converting enzyme and the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS). Dysregulation of this pathway, which can be measured with plasma renin activity (PRA), is important not only because RAAS dysfunction is associated with increased mortality but also because treatment ...
