I once heard surviving a sudden cardiac arrest described as “being given a second chance” or a survivor’s stating that “there must be something left to accomplish.” Whatever the perspective may be, having the knowledge and skills to participate in resuscitation and revival is crucial for every critical care pharmacist. Our patients deserve the best of what we know and can offer to make sudden cardiac arrest “something they will never remember, but also something they will never forget.”

The specialty of critical care pharmacy has grown during the past half-century from consisting of a handful of visionary pharmacists practicing in a variety of critical care settings to becoming the standard of care for intensive care units in the United States. The leadership of the pioneering critical care pharmacists has not only led to the pharmacy profession’s formal recognition within the interdisciplinary world of critical care, but has also resulted in several studies documenting the value of critical care pharmacists relative to improving patient care. This ranges from a reduction in drug and overall medical costs, as well as adverse drug effects/drug interactions, to improvements in patient morbidity and mortality. The evolution of critical care pharmacy has been fueled by exponential growth in the training and credentialing of practitioners and researchers within this specialty area. The culmination of this growth is evidenced by BPS recognition of critical care pharmacy as a specialty in 2013. Framing the core knowledge base areas and skills needed for success as a critical care pharmacist is the focus of the newly crafted ACCP Critical Care Pharmacy Preparatory and Review Course.

The provision of nutrition support, fluid and electrolyte therapy, glycemic control, and management of metabolic-based acid-base disorders, often termed metabolic support, has been the responsibility of many clinical pharmacists engaged in the care of critically ill patients for more than 4 decades. Three of the top five high-alert medications identified by ISMP as causing potential patient harm (insulin, potassium chloride or phosphate, and hypertonic saline) are part of the metabolic support armamentarium. Critical care pharmacists are uniquely qualified to serve in a leadership role in these activities, not just because medical school training is often limited in this area but also because metabolic support emulates the same principles that guide pharmaceutical care. That is, insufficient doses will be ineffective, doses too high will be toxic, therapy needs to be individualized, intense monitoring is warranted, and dosing adjustment is often indicated.
