Abstract

The administration of β-blockers in patients with sepsis is a trending topic in intensive care medicine since the landmark study by Morelli and colleagues, showing a striking decrease in 28-day mortality compared to standard care. While the available evidence suggests that the use of β-blockers in septic shock is safe, the effects on hemodynamics are controversial. In this paper, we review the effect of β-blockade in septic shock on hemodynamics from animal models to critically ill patients.
