Patients in septic shock, by definition, are not responsive to intravenous fluids alone and require vasopressors and possibly positive inotropes. Many inotropes and vasoactive medications require constant rate infusions (CRI). Infusion or syringe pumps to deliver these medications along with appropriate diluents, that is, D5W (dextrose 5% in water) are required for their administration. The treatment for anaphylactic shock includes IV fluids, epinephrine, antihistamines, and glucocorticoids. Anti-infectives Antibiotics are used to treat, and in very specific situations to prevent, bacterial infections.

Gastrointestinal (GI) medications A patient presenting with signs referable to the gastrointestinal tract is one of the most common presenting emergencies. The emergency practice should probably carry at least one each of the proton pump inhibitors and H2 antagonists as antacids; parenteral forms are often useful. Sucralfate should also be considered for local gut protection. Parenteral antiemetics affecting the chemoreceptor trigger zone or the vomiting center, such as NK-1 receptor antagonists, phenothiazines, metoclopramide, and 5-HT3 antagonists, are the best antiemetics for the emergent patient.

Backup systems with highpressure tanks are often employed. Oxygen delivery points Oxygen is piped from the source manifold to oxygen receptacles. These receptacles have a special fitting (the Diameter Index Safety System) to connect oxygen hosing or a regulator. Quick connects are available in different popular configurations such as Chemetron, PuritanBennett, and Ohmeda (available from suppliers such as Precision Medical, Northampton, PA, and Allied Healthcare Products, St. Louis, MO). Oxygen receptacles can be placed on walls or in ceilings and can be recessed or wall-mounted.
