Ventricular fibrillation and pulseless ventricular tachycardia: CPR followed by defibrillation, one shock, (2 J/kg) and immediate resumption of CPR, epinephrine, and/ or amiodarone, and/or lidocaine. Alternate drugs with defibrillation (4 J/kg: single shock each time). Always resume CPR immediately after shock for 2 minutes or 5 cycles of 30:2 or 10 cycles of 15:2, then reassess rhythm.
It is an effective inotrope for the normotensive post-arrest patient with poor perfusion. Dobutamine is particularly useful for patients with congestive heart failure or cardiogenic shock, since it increases cardiac output without significantly increasing heart rate. At a dose >10 mcg/kg per min, dobutamine tends to produce hypotension due to afterload reduction and decreased SVR. The hypotension may then require dopamine or epinephrine to increase the SVR. An alternate approach is to start the patient on dopamine initially to stabilize the blood pressure and then switch to dobutamine.
