Hyperinsulinaemic euglycaemic therapy use in neurogenic stunned myocardium following subarachnoid haemorrhage

Intensive Care Unit, Scarborough General Hospital, North Yorkshire, UK


We present a 62-year-old female who collapsed with a subarachnoid haemorrhage. This was complicated by profound shock secondary to neurogenic stunned myocardium. As the patient demonstrated life-threatening catecholamine-resistant shock that was unresponsive to conventional treatment measures, hyperinsulinaemic euglycaemic therapy was utilised as a rescue therapy. To our knowledge this has not previously been described in the literature. The patient proceeded to stabilise and made a good recovery.
