Transplant Emergencies (Part I)

emDocs - September 5, 2016 - Authors: Long B and Koyfman A
"Summary
  • Transplant patients possess significant variation in anatomy and physiology based on the surgical procedure and medications.
  • Infection is the most frequent complication, classified by several different periods: within one month of transplant, one to six months, and after six months.
  • Each time period is associated with different infections.
  • Rejection occurs in several phases including hyperacute, acute, and chronic. Patient symptoms differ based on the specific organ.
  • Immunosuppressive medication effects are common and have significant interactions with other medications commonly used in the ED.
  • All transplant patients require consultation with the transplant team. Surgical consultation may also be required."
