Abstract

A 56-year-old man with a history of coronary artery disease which is medically managed, diabetes mellitus (non-insulin dependent), and recently diagnosed Guillain-Barré syndrome presents for surgical management of acute cholecystitis. He is transferred to the preoperative area from the medical step down unit. On your arrival at the bedside for preoperative evaluation, you note that he is on 2 L of oxygen via nasal cannula and appears mildly dyspneic.
