§ Description of a clinical sindrom -> symptom complex, not diagnosis

§ With sudden onset under - 6 hours § Often accompanied by § reduced general condition § peritoneal symptoms §  can lead to shock § Requires a fast approach and treatment

Clinical case

§ October 2011, 10:39 Cornelius Straße, Düsseldorf

§ 4th floor § 10:00 arrival at the patient

§ What should we do?

§  Anamnesis -  Pain history -  Medical and surgical history -  Medication §  physical examination §  Vital Signs -  Pulse, blood pressure, respiratory frequency, temerature -  SpO2 -  Blood Sugar Test

Possible causes of acute abdominal pain

§  Anamnesis -  pain history -  Medical and surgical history

-  Medication §  physical examination §  Vital Signs -  Pulse, blood pressure -  respiratory frequency -  Temerature -  SpO2 -  ECG -  Blood Sugar Test

57 years old patient sudden and permanent abdominal pain Hypertension, hyperlipoproteinemia, obesity smoker None

HF 110/min, BP 90 syst/60 dias RF 40/min 37,5°C 93% sinus rhythm, tachycardia BST: 154mg / dl

§  Inspection

Patient pale, tachypneic

§  Auscultation

Heart and Lungs: tachycardic, tachypneic

§  Palpation

Abdomen: pain, distention, tenderness, pulsating abdominal tumor

MANAGEMENT IN PRIMARY CARE Analgesia Oxygen therapy ECG monitoring nothing by mouth (NPO) Value hemodynamic stability. §  If the patient is in shock: Ensure two venous accesses for electrolyte replacement that can be done with crystalloid (0.9% saline or Ringer's lactate), colloids. §  Transfer §  §  §  §  § 

Ranji et al., JAMA 2006 §  12 studies, placebo vs. opioids §  9 adults and 3 with children §  Opioids may change the results of a physical examination §  no increase of "management errors"

Manterola et al., The Cochrane Library, 2007 §  8 trials, placebo vs. opioids §  Analgesia with opioids: improving patient comfort §  Use of opioids do not increase the risk for a wrong diagnosis / treatment

Clinical case Probable diagnosis: (covered) ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm Initial Management: §  Oxygen application §  Analgesia §  Two larg peripheral intravenous catheters §  circulatory stabilization §  permissive hypotension (50-100mmHg - systolic) §  restrictive volume replacement therapy §  Transport to hospital - specialized center

van der Vliet et al. Hypotensive Hemostasis (Permissive hypotension) for Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, 2007 §  Limitation of fluid resuscitation to 500ml crystalline infusion §  Maintain blood pressure systolic 50-100mmHg, if necessary use of nitroglycerin

Clinical case Diagnosis:

(covered) ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm

Clinical case Therapy:

Open aneurysm repair with a bifurcated prosthetic graft

Conclusion §  Acute abdominal pain

§  description of a clinical sindrom §  sudden, severe abdominal pain §  with more than 50 differential diagnoses is a systematic approach absolutely necessary

§  Analgesics: §  the Use of pain killers do not increase the risk for a wrong diagnosis / treatment and should be aplied if necessary

§  Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm §  We should maintain ploodpresure systolic 50-100 mmHg, limit the fluid resuscitation to 500ml §  fast transport to a specialized center
