We've all had them - That particular patient that stands out for whatever reason and makes you think "I wish I could discuss this with some of my colleagues to see if they would have done the same thing".
So we are going to use this space to do just that - We'll put up a recent case that one of us has seen and which we think others would benefit from discussing. Feel free to add comments and opinion or to share your experience.
By the way - this isn't supposed to be an exam; just a way of teasing out some of the more thorny issues that we intensivists face on a regular basis.
