Title:
Unanticipated Acute Adrenal Insufficiency During Emergency Thoracotomy Re-Exploration
Authors:
Rawlings, J Lee; Spivey, Jerry A; Castresana, Manuel R.
Abstract:
For the last 50 years there has been a debate over the management of corticosteroid supplementation in the context of surgical or critically ill patients. At a minimum, clinicians agree that chronic corticosteroids should be continued in the perioperative or ICU setting, however in patients without a history of steroid use, acute adrenal insufficiency as the cause of hemodynamic compromise can be an elusive diagnosis. We present a case report.
