Unexplained hypotension? Think!

Easier said than done to think through all the options when faced with a critically ill patient. So rather than getting side-tracked by the question “Which fluids doctor? Normal saline or Hartmann’s?” work though the causes. Even better don’t reinvent the wheel but go to a prompt card which has been prepared with a cool head and the distance we don’r always have in the resus room.
