The San Antonio Vasopressin Symposium reviewed substantial accumulated data concerning vasopressin in haemorrhagic, septic, and cardiac arrest shock conditions and found that there is considerable evidence to support the use of vasopressin in overcoming vasopressin deficiency or insufficiency. The value of vasopressin in the setting of trauma requires further investigation. It was concluded that a large, multicenter controlled trial of vasopressin is needed to assess the therapeutic benefit of vasopressin replacement in the setting of trauma with haemorrhagic shock that is prolonged and profound.
