I´m looking forward your vids, diego!

This case was
troublesome for me because I thought that I´ve remedy the situation
but finally there was no chance to save the patient notwithstanding
inotropic support, vasorpressor (norepinephrin, pitressin).

take echoes of end of life beating hearts ( in upcoming days I will
post them all )

80 y old patient with septic shock and cardiac arrest. The subxiphoid echocardiography showed a picture compatible with a septic cardiomyopathy. After 6 min CPR there was a return of a spontaneous circulation. Unfortunately the patient died after 6 h he was admitted to our ICU.
