ACTA Chirurgica Scandinavica, 1922, Vol. 54 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Acta Chirurgica Scandinavica, 1922, Vol. 54 The patient was rather weak previous to the second operation and became worse after the operation. The systolic blood pressure was 155, but the hemoglobin determination was 90 with a normal value for the apparatus of 80. Unfortunately no hemoglobin reading was taken before the first operation, and the patients normal hemoglobin value was, therefore, not known. With regard to the great loss of fluid, which the patient had suffered during three preceeding days, the high hemoglobin reading was regarded as indicating a concentra tion of the blood. One could not say, however, that a pronounced state of shock existed. She was pale and the pulse was rapid but of a comparatively good quality, and the blood pressure was, as already mentioned, high. The general impression, however, was that she did not do well and with regard to the high hemoglobin reading an intravenous injection of gum sahne was considered advisable. The injection was started at 4 p. M. Or about 45 minutes after the operation had been finished. Five hundred cc. Of a 7 per cent solution of gum acacia in normal saline solution were allowed to run in intravenously during the course of 20 minutes. After the injection the blood pressure was 145 and the hemoglobin 80. The patient did quite well and her condition did not cause any immediate apprehension. At 5 p. M. Her condition suddenly declined. The pulse became small and very rapid, there was pronounced dyspnoe and tracheal ronchi. She became rapidly worse and died at p. M.
