So the plot thickens

Posted Oct 14 2008 4:59am
I went to check my seizure patient's chart and surprisingly his tox screen was completely clean. His other labs were relatively normal considering his condition. The only other finding was his troponin that was elevated slightly. Urine was clear, cbc was clear. I didn't see his head CT results but they admitted him to ICU for status epilepticus. So no drugs. Maybe he had seized so long that it was messing with his hypothalmus and thats why he was hyperthermic. They did cultures. So we'll see. I will try to get ahold of the CT tomorrow night.
