CAD, NSTEMI Outcome: Unresolved
Decreased sensorium 3/22/10
Course in the Wards Admission patient was noted to be lethargic, GCS9 (E3V1M5) referred to Neurology – Assessment: Metabolic encephalopathy probably secondary to 1. Hypoxia, 2.Systemic infection; r/o Old bilateral lacunar infarction. Cranial MRI was suggested to document possible previous infarction. LMWH and anti-platelet were continued. Citicholine 1g/IV q12 was started. Outcome: – There was noticeable improvement in patient’s sensorium (GCS11 E4V1M6)
Course in the Wards On 6 th HD, patient had occasional spontaneous eye opening, followed some commands with pupils 2mm ERTL, and can move all extremities equally. Citicholine 500mg/cap BID was continued

Problem: Anemia Outcome: Resolved
Aspiration Pneumonia 3/22/10
Course in the Wards Upon admission – Respiratory distress with RR of 28, febrile at 37.8 C, with bibasilar crackles – CXR: ill-defined infiltrates over both lung bases, more on the right side, which may represent pneumonic process – Patient was hooked to mechanical ventilator under AC mode, TV 350, FiO2 100%, BUR 18, P/F 60, – combivent nebulization + 2cc Ambroxol q8 were also given and Ertapenem 1g/IV OD and N-acetylcysteine 600mg/tab 1 tab OD were started – Patient was maintained on moderate to high back rest with strict aspiration precaution – Azithromycin 500mg/tab 1 tab OD was added to previous medications – Decrease in bibasilar crackles was observed but patient still had febrile episodes
Course in the Wards On the 4 th HD – Persistence of febrile episodes and patient developed crackles and rhonchi on both lung fields – Ertapenem was shifted to Piperacillin-Tazobactam 4.5g/IV q8 and paracetamol 500mg/tab q4 PRN for T 38.0 C was given – CXR: showed magnified cardiac size, sclerotic aortic arch, progression of pneumonic infiltrates in both lungs, bilateral pleural effusion, and osteopenia of visualized osseous structures. On the 7 th HD – Patient was still febrile and with bilateral crackles – CXR: minimal resolution of the interstitial alveolar infiltrates in both lung with slight resolution of pleural effusion bilaterally. On the 8 th HD – Persistence of febrile episodes, with crackles bilaterally, was referred to Infectious Disease service, and was started on Amikacin 700mg/IV via infusion for 2 hours, once a day for 5 days. – ET aspirate was submitted for culture and sensitivity and grams stain which revealed no microorganims seen with PMN leukocytes of 4 plus.
Course in the Wards – On 11 th HD – ET aspirate C & S result revealed Klebsiella pneumoniae, hence Piperacillin-Tazobactam was shifted back to Imipenem when afebrile. On the 15 th HD – Patient underwent tracheostomy. – Post-op, patient tolerated the procedure well, she was afebrile with decreased crackles on both lung fields – Repeat CBC showed normal WBC count. Imipenem was then shifted down to ciprofloxacin 500mg/tab, 1 tab BID and co-amoxyclav 625mg/tab, 1 tab BID both to be taken for 14 days. On the on the 18 th HD – CXR: progression of pleural e ffusion on the right and with hazy opacities still on right lung upper lobe. – ET aspirate GS and CS were also requested. Anitbiotics and duavent nebulation q8 were continued.
Course in the Wards On the 20th HD – Patient experienced difficulty in breathing and ABG was requested and showed partially compensated respiratory acidosis, mechanical ventilator set-up was then adjusted accordingly and duavent nebulization was increased to q6. On the 25 th HD – ABG: fully compensated respiratory acidosis and pneumothorax in the right hemithorax, regression of pulmonary edema, with no significant change in pleural effusion, respectively. On the 28 th HD – CXR: when compared to the one done 4/16/10 showed progressive haziness over the right lungfield, as well as the left lower lung area, there is slight reexpansion of the right upper lung area. – Antibiotics were still continued and congestion was entertained so intravenous fluids was discontinued and Furosemide 20 mg/IV was given. On the 30 th HD – Her antibiotics, which she took for 14 days were discontinued. On the 31 st HD – CXR revealed no significant interval change from the one previously done. On the 38 th HD, – ABG showed partially compensated metabolic alkalosis.
Course in the Wards On the 39 th HD – ABG showed fully compensated metabolic alkalosis. – CXR: partial clearing of the pneumonia opacities bilaterally, there is partial resolution of the right sided pleural effusion and the rest of the lung finding is stationary. On the 48 th and 51 st HD – ABG showed fully compensated metabolic alkalosis. On the 60 th -63th HD – the patient was tried to wean from the mech vent but the patient did not tolerate. ABG was done thrice. On the 67th HD – CXR: clearing of the pulmonary edema or pneumonia and non-specific interstitial infiltrates are seen in the right upper lung area.
Aspiration Pneumonia Outcome: Improvement
