Psudomonas Meningitis

  1. 0
    Can someone please explain to me why this is so deadly?

    I was working the in Neuro ICU on Sunday for the first time (I'm an extern in the float pool) and took care of a pt with this.

    ICP was >40
    CSF was littered w/WBC's (couldn't see though it at all and they clumped really quickly)

    Pt contracted infection from a single car accident. Was ejected with multiple facial fractures. They think the psudomonas got in through the fractures.
