In a trauma pt with multiple fractures, internal injuries, and an unstable airway, emergent endotracheal intubation in the emergency department is considered prior to definitive surgical therapy. What is the most likely hemodynamic consequence of intubation and initiation of mechanical ventiliation in this subject?
- Secondary to decrease in venous return associated with:
- -sympatholytic agents used for induction
- -positive pressure-induced increase in intrathoracic pressure
