An Interesting Presentation of Pheochromocytoma.

Indian J Crit Care Med 2018 Jan;22(1):40-42

Department of Critical Care Medicine, NMC Hospital, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Pheochromocytoma is a rare cause of hypertension, but it could have severe consequences if not recognized and treated appropriately. Pheochromocytoma classically presents with paroxysms of hypertension and adrenergic symptoms including classic triad of episodic headache, sweating, and tachycardia. The clinical presentation of pheochromocytoma can mimic a number of other medical conditions including migraine, cardiac arrhythmias, myocardial infarction, and stroke, thus making the diagnosis of pheochromocytoma difficult, and treatment is directed toward presenting issue rather than underlying problem in such patients. We present a case of a 41-year-old male patient who presented with cerebellar infarct and found to have aortic thrombi and later developed acute myocardial infaction during same hospitalization. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of this kind.

Iatrogenic Bilateral Simultaneous Pneumothorax: Call for Vigilance.

Indian J Crit Care Med 2017 Sep;21(9):607-609

Department of Critical Care Medicine, NMC Hospital, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Iatrogenic pneumothorax refers to the pneumothorax generated after diagnostic or therapeutic procedure. We report the case of a 40-year-old male who had bilateral simultaneous iatrogenic pneumothorax with pneumomediastinum leading to cardiac arrest situation, due to wrong placement of nebulization kit in spontaneously breathing intubated patient. We report this case for its rarity, due to the critical importance of this cause as a etiology of bilateral simultaneous iatrogenic pneumothorax leading to cardiac arrest situation, and need to understand the importance of continuous training and stress of emergency environment.

A 40-year-old female presented with respiratory difficulty, cough and sputum with blood streaking. Her right lung was destroyed, and trachea was shifted to the same side. On mechanical ventilation, she developed hypoxia and rise in blood pressure. Ventilator was not delivering set tidal volume. After looking into the cause, it was decided to reintubate the patient with new endotracheal tube after cutting bevel. Thereafter, there was successful ventilation.

Authors:
Sunil Kumar Garg

Indian J Crit Care Med 2014 Sep;18(9):612-4

Department of Critical Care Medicine, Sarvodaya Hospital, Sector - 8, Faridabad, Haryana, India.

A 19-year-old male presented with history of massive hemoptysis. The patient was kept on mechanical ventilation because of severe hypoxia. Lung protective ventilation with low tidal volume was given in view of very poor pulmonary compliance. During the course of treatment, the patient developed a very high CO2 level of 373 mmHg. The patient was successfully weaned off on the 9(th) day without any obvious adverse consequences.

Hair dye poisoning: An unusual encounter.

Indian J Crit Care Med 2014 Jun;18(6):402-4

Department of Critical Care, Sarvodaya Hospital, Faridabad, Haryana, India.

A 19-year-old female patient presented with alleged history of hair dye "Super Vasmol 33" intake. She presented with cervicofacial edema with upper airway obstruction. Although patient was being managed for airway obstruction, she developed cardiac arrest. Cardiac resuscitation could not be started at that point of time because managing airway was the priority in a patient who in hypoxic cardiac arrest. As soon as the airway was secured by emergency tracheostomy, cardiac resuscitation was initiated and the patient was successfully revived.
