Management

  • Patients with a MAP that is under or above set goal values should be treated with fluids, blood products, vasopressors, inotropes, or vasodilators depending on the clinical scenario.
  • Specific blood pressure management and MAP goals will depend on the etiology of the high or low MAP and must be individualized to optimize perfusion and prevent harm.

Critical Actions

  • A MAP ≥ 60 mmHg is believed to be needed to maintain adequate tissue perfusion.
  • A MAP ≥ 65 mmHg is recommended in patients with severe sepsis and septic shock by the Surviving Sepsis Campaign Guidelines Committee.
