FORMULA

Mean Arterial Pressure = 1/3*(SBP) + 2/3*(DBP)

FACTS & FIGURES
  • A MAP ≥60 mmHg is believed to be needed to maintain adequate tissue perfusion.
  • A MAP ≥65 mmHg is recommended in patients with severe sepsis and septic shock by the Surviving Sepsis Campaign Guidelines Committee.
EVIDENCE APPRAISAL

This article by Dr. Sheldon A. Magder offers an in-depth review of the physiology and the factors that affect blood pressure. It emphasizes the need to individualize patient management when it comes to blood patient targets.
