Evolution of cardiorespiratory variables in myxedema coma--a case report.

Abstract

Normalization of hemodynamic, oxygen transport and oxygen consumption indices occurred within a week of treatment in a patient with myxedema coma. Ventilatory weaning and extubation was achieved using aminophylline, physical therapy and pleural drainage. Before extubation, naloxone was administered without any significant ventilatory improvement or change in endorphin levels.
