Shock is the final common pathway of numerous disease states. NOTE: On October 25, 2011 (after this program was recorded), drotegogin (activated protein C) was voluntarily withdrawn from the market by the manufacturer after a new study failed to show that drotegogin is beneficial in patients with septic shock. This medication is no longer commercially available.
