Title:
Severe Compartment Syndrome Following Extravasation of Fluids in a Critically Ill Neonate
Authors:
Martinez-Lu, Kianfa; Weatherred, Ted; Florentino-Pineda, Ivan
Abstract:
Intravenous therapy is generally a safe and effective way to administer different therapies to patients of all ages. Despite its ubiquitous use in modern medicine, it is not devoid of complications. Hematoma formation, phlebitis, infection, and tissue infiltration are some common complications of the use of peripheral IV catheters. Here we report a case in which peripheral IV fluid extravasation caused severe compartment syndrome in a critically ill preterm neonate undergoing exploratory laparotomy in the NICU.
