Abstract

Critically ill patients are at high risk of adverse drug events during their intensive care unit stay. Of the potential adverse drug events, those related to the cardiovascular system are particularly concerning. Common cardiovascular adverse drug events include drug-induced arrhythmias, drug-induced blood pressure abnormalities, and drug-induced heart failure. The specific drug-induced events to be reviewed include bradycardia, tachycardia, corrected QT interval prolongation, hypertension, hypotension, and heart failure exacerbation.
