Low lung compliance 4. Large ventilation/perfusion (V/Q) mismatch 10. Explain high-pressure versus low-pressure ARDS. Purists appropriately note that lung congestion resulting from high intravascular Pc hydrostatic pressure secondary to heart failure is really not primary respiratory distress syndrome. If the pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP) is >18 mm Hg, the diagnosis is highpressure pulmonary edema (not ARDS). A patient with pure mitral stenosis may have (high-pressure) lung congestion, whereas a malnourished patient may develop (low-pressure) lung congestion; neither of these is, strictly speaking, ARDS, although patients with ARDS frequently have components of both.

Optimize volume status; give volume until further increase in right-sided (central venous pressure [CVP]) and left-sided (pulmonary capillary wedge pressure [PCWP]) preload confers no additional benefit for CO or blood pressure (BP). ) 30 CHAPTER 4 HOW TO THINK ABOUT SHOCK 31 2. If CO, BP, and tissue perfusion remain inadequate despite adequate preload, the patient has a pump (cardiogenic shock) problem. Infuse cardiac inotropic drugs (b-agonist) to the point of toxicity (typically cardiac ectopy), which will have lots of frightening premature ventricular contractions.

An impulse of supraventricular origin that is conducted with aberrancy through the ventricle can take enough time to make it a wide-complex beat. In one study, 89% of 100 patients presenting to an emergency department (ED) with a wide-complex tachycardia eventually proved to exhibit ventricular tachycardia, whereas 11% were diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia with aberrancy. 28 CHAPTER 3 EVALUATION AND TREATMENT OF CARDIAC DYSRHYTHMIAS 11. What do you do if you cannot tell whether a ventricular complex is wide or narrow?
