Respiratory tract infection associated with seizures

A two year old girl presented to her local hospital with breathing difficulties. She was diagnosed with virus induced wheeze. On day one of admission she deteriorated and developed respiratory failure, which required ventilatory support and transfer to our paediatric intensive care unit. Figure 1⇓ shows her chest radiograph on arrival. A multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) panel performed on respiratory secretions identified a micro-organism. She was successfully extubated to nasal cannula oxygen two days later and transferred to a paediatric ward. Four hours after transfer she had a prolonged tonic-clonic convulsion. Owing to profound respiratory depression after two doses of lorazepam she required re-intubation and transfer back to the paediatric intensive care unit.

Critical Care

Endotracheal intubation is frequently complicated by laryngeal edema, which may present as postextubation stridor or respiratory difficulty or both. Ultimately, postextubation laryngeal edema may result in respiratory failure with subsequent reintubation. Risk factors for postextubation laryngeal edema include female gender, large tube size, and prolonged intubation. Although patients at low risk for postextubation respiratory insufficiency due to laryngeal edema can be identified by the cuff leak test or laryngeal ultrasound, no reliable test for the identification of high-risk patients is currently available. If applied in a timely manner, intravenous or nebulized corticosteroids can prevent postextubation laryngeal edema; however, the inability to identify high-risk patients prevents the targeted pretreatment of these patients. Therefore, the decision to start corticosteroids should be made on an individual basis and on the basis of the outcome of the cuff leak test and additional risk factors. The preferential treatment of postextubation laryngeal edema consists of intravenous or nebulized corticosteroids combined with nebulized epinephrine, although no data on the optimal treatment algorithm are available. In the presence of respiratory failure, reintubation should be performed without delay. Application of noninvasive ventilation or inhalation of a helium/oxygen mixture is not indicated since it does not improve outcome and increases the delay to intubation.
