Brief Answer: I would not label this patient as terminal Detailed Answer: Hello, I have read your query and the attached reports. I would not label this patient as terminal. Something can be tried for him. Kindly let me know few more details. 1. why is his HR at 92/mt with pacemaker? 2. What is his 24 hr. urinary output? If I were the treating doctor, I would manage his fluids according to output and electrolytes. In addition you could give him 20% albumin 100 ml daily @5drops/mt for 3 days and a better antibiotic like Meropenem with sulbactam and Inj. Metronidazole only 100 ml twice daily. Thanks again...........Dr. P.C.Singh

Thank you Dr XXXXXXX I value your expertise greatly. Unfortunately, I don't know the answer to your two questions. Could you tell me the significance of a HR at 92 with a pacemaker? Why should he have 20% albumin 100 ml daily? There is a suspicion that he has sepsis even though the blood cultures were negatiive. Why would the alternative antibiotics be better. I'm sorry to be asking all these question of you, but I am trying to gain a better understanding of the situation.
