Click the link to read an interesting article published in February 2018 in the Journal of Intensive Care entitled, "Effect of Norepinephrine Dosage on Mortality in Patients with Septic Shock." The investigators evaluated 112 patients with septic shock and divided the patients into two groups: one receiving a high dose and one receiving a low dose of norepinephrine. This study concluded:

“There was no statistically significant difference in 28-day mortality between the patients with septic shock treated with high-dose norepinephrine vs those treated with low-dose norepinephrine. However, the number of VFD was significantly higher in the group treated with low-dose norepinephrine than in the group treated with high-dose norepinephrine.”
