Marik Protocol for Septic Shock: Looking at Vitamin C

Hydrocortisone, Ascorbic Acid and Thiamine
(HAT Therapy) for the Treatment of Sepsis. Focus on Ascorbic Acid

Controversies. Controversies. Controversies. I tell you, the behaviors of Intensivists when it comes to king septic patients IV Vitamin C for sepsis are quite perplexing. We had a cheap drug, <$20 a day that MAY help treat sepsis and people don’t even bother to try it out. I know I use it because if it saves lives, why not try? Let’s say that the trials show a mortality benefit, two years have already passed since the first trial. Think of all the additional lives you could have saved but didn’t because your ego was in the damned way. If Marik is wrong, nothing bad happened. But if he’s right, you’re going to beat yourself up.
