A 36-year-old man is admitted to your unit 4 hours after a surgical reduction of a compound fracture of the femur. His other health problems include hypercholesterolemia, for which he takes atorvastatin (Lipitor) 80 mg once daily, and bipolar disorder for which he takes lithium (Eskalith) 600 mg once daily. He has an IV of dextrose 5% in 0.45% saline infusing at a rate of 150 mL/hr. His blood pressure is now 96/70, down from the last reading of 128/80 obtained in the postanesthesia recovery area.
