ETT, NGT and right jugular CVL are well positioned.
Diffuse hazy and coalescent airspace opacification bilaterally with a predominance in the lower and mid zones (which has increased from the initial daily CXRs).
The patient was treated for ARDS and made a slow recovery, spending 10 days in ICU. This was despite antivenom which was given in the emergency department 1 hour after the bite.
Tiger snake envenomation can cause 1:
- consumptive coagulopathy (VICC, venom-induced consumptive coagulopathy) which is the most common effect
ARDS in this case is probably multifactorial due to all these effects (at least this is what was hypothesized by the ICU physicians and toxicologists).
