Can someone explain how milrinone is used to increase scvo2 in a septic patient? i know that milrinone is an inotrope so will increase cardiac contractility... and yes this patient also had HF. my orders to titrate were based on a goal scvo2 though. this was my first time working with this drip as i am new to ICU. maybe i am missing something very obvious? are orders to titrate this med always based on a goal scvo2? i would've expected CI?
