Shock liver

SCANCRIT.COM - Posted on May 26, 2016 - By K
"Interesting paper in AJEM. Hypoxic hepatitis (HH), ‘shock liver’, is defined as an increase in serum aminotransferase levels (20 times the upper normal level) after respiratory or circulatory failure. It is commonly seen in critical illness and after cardiac arrest. In ICU patients HH has been associated with poor outcomes but little is known about what it means in ROSC patients...
Take-home message
Hypoxic hepatitis in cardiac arrest reflects longer periods of global poor perfusion. HH is significantly related to death and poor (neurologic) outcome. As always the numbers are tiny but this could be useful for prognosticating these patients."
