Transplant Patient in the ED

Emergency Physicians Monthly
EP Monthly - By Long B and Koyfman A - January 23, 2017
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. 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. Each organ transplanted has several different complications that may occur. All transplant patients require consultation with the transplant team. Surgical consultation may also be required."
