Increasing numbers of patients are receiving kidney, pancreas, and kidney–pancreas transplants. Despite advances in care, complications continue to occur and may lead to serious morbidity and increased mortality. The complications can be serious enough that patients may become critically ill, necessitating care in the intensive care unit. The complications are myriad and depend on patient and procedural factors. After transplantation, complications can be serious enough that patients become critically ill. Critically ill patients are different from other patient populations. They are inherently unstable. This chapter examines the care of these critically ill patients, with specific emphasis placed on infections and sepsis, respiratory failure, and acid-base, cardiac, and vascular complications.
