"This article was first published in the Winter 2024 issue of Critical Connections.

The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists reported 301 active shortages in the United States in just the first quarter of 2023—the highest number of shortages in more than 10 years. Drug shortages have severe economic, clinical, and humanistic effects on patient outcomes. The article’s review of recent literature demonstrated the impact of critical care drug shortages on medication safety, morbidity, and mortality.

Critical Connections, the critical care industry’s only newsmagazine, provides information on cutting-edge topics in critical care useful to the entire multiprofessional team."
