Management Of Dic In Post Cesarean Patient
Emergently: Dic (disseminated intravascular coagulation) is an emergency in any situation. The patient with dic has, for one of several reasons, consumed elements in her blood which are needed to cause blood to clot. Without the ability to clot, she will bleed continuously until something is done to replace the "clotting factors" or otherwise arrest the bleeding, e.g., hysterectomy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

First crystalloid solution, then blood units if loss is >2000 ml or shock progresses despite aggressive replacement. ...Read more

Please explain why is a post operative patient under sub arachnoid block anesthesia positioned flat on bed for 8 hours?
Spinal headache: The reason why patients are kept in the lying down position after subarachnoid block or spinal anesthesia is to decrease the chance of developing a post dural puncture headache or commonly known as a spinal headache. There is a hole made from the introduction of the spinal needle through the dura and into the subarachnoid space to deposit the medication there to accomplish a spinal block. ...Read more

D&C and death: Unfortunately any anesthetic carries the possibility of death. Modern techniques are much safer then even 20 years ago. In fact.

You are probably more likely to be struck by lightning on the way to the hospital. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Shouldn't be any: If you are on usual therapeutic doses of both adderal and xanax, (alprazolam) they will generally continue your medication pre-op, and begin it again as soon as you are eating.

80yr.Has a cerebrovascular event in the early perioperative stage of an open heart surgery operation. Abort operation or go on ? The surgeon choose not to abort the operation to assess for the severity of injuries to the brain. The outcome of the operatio
I : I do not believe any physician reviewing this comment will be able to appreciate the condition of this patient going into surgery to assess the risk factors, rationale and options for treatment. I doubt that the surgeon would have known the patient was having a stroke during the cardiac procedure. It is not the usual practice of monitoring brain activity during cardiopulmonary bypass. Clearly there was significant cardiac problems, if indeed this patient required two valve repair/replacement, coronary artery bypass grafting and thromboendarterectomy. The fact that the patient suffered multiorgan system failure (as you suggest with the comment that there was "sustained irreversible vital organs damage"), suggests that the pump time was perhaps longer than usual, but understanding also that the organs of an 80 year old patient are fragile to start with. The finding of bilateral strokes on post-op day 3 would be consistent with events that occurred during or shortly after surgery, but likely not known during surgery. So unless there were other indications for the surgeon to abort, then continuing with the operation was understandable. I suggest you make an appointment with the surgeon to discuss your concerns and questions personally, to iron out any confusion or misunderstandings that exist and to bring closure to this case. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
