Adrenergic vasoconstrictor therapy can be used to restore tissue perfusion pressure, but has little capacity to improve the peripheral distribution of blood flow or cellular oxygen availability.

The concurrent administration of dobutamine when using vasopressor agents should be considered to maintain an adequate cardiac output.
