Depressed myocardial function results in increased heart rate and cardiac contractility from catecholamine release in an effort to maintain cardiac output. Increased peripheral vasoconstriction helps to maintain blood pressure as well. d. Without intervention, the resultant increase in oxygen demand and decrease in diastolic filling will lead to worsening myocardial ischemia. Treatment a. Patients must be adequately volume resuscitated prior to initiation of inotropic support. b. A central venous pressure or pulmonary artery catheter is used to monitor and guide resuscitation in these patients.
