Critical Care Pharmacology Case:
A 62-year-old man with a history of hypertension has been complaining of abdominal pain for several weeks.
He tells you that the pain is moderate in intensity and does not seem to be related to eating.
He also had chills, but no fevers have been documented.
You order computed tomography of the abdomen, which showed the presence of abdominal aortic aneurysm.
You consult a cardiovascular specialist, who advises urgent surgery because the patient's symptoms may represent rapid progression of the aneurysm.
The surgical procedure is performed without technical difficulties, and the patient is being postoperatively transferred to the intensive care unit
