Take the Critical Care Challenge

Posted by Karen Buckley • December 11th, 2013

In this month’s Critical Care Challenge, our sedated and intubated patient’s condition stabilized for two days, after which his ALT suddenly rose to 3402, his AST to 5322, and his bilirubin to 3.8. How should his liver failure be treated?

Vote and comment now on NEJM.org and find the results and answer on December 26 in the fifth article in our Critical Care series, Acute Liver Failure. If you’ve missed previous articles in the series, check out the Critical Care Medicine page.
