    Purpose: The current work aims to determine whether patients presenting with Acute Alcohol Intoxicated (AAI) traumatic injuries are at higher risk for hemodynamic compromise after induction of general anesthesia. Method: A retrospective chart review from January 1, 2008 to June 1, 2017 of patients aged ≥ 18 years of age undergoing emergent exploratory laparotomy within 4 hours of presentation were included in the study. Data collected included age, sex, weight, blood alcohol level, Systolic Blood Pressure (SBP), INR, injury severity score, base deficit, pre- and post-induction Mean Arterial Pressure (MAP), induction medication and dose, length of hypotension, and vasoactive medications administered within 20 minutes post-induction. Results: Post-induction MAPs were lower for alcohol intoxicated patients than for non.. View More»
