The role of ghrelin as a brain--gut peptide emphasizes the significance of afferent vagal fibers as a major pathway to the brain, serving the purpose of maintaining physiologic homeostasis (2, 4).
16] Patient dependence on technology, with its potential for power failure or disconnect, along with movement from the security of the intensive care environment and isolation from support personnel are factors which Smith et al cited as potentially detrimental to the maintenance of physiologic homeostasis during diagnostic tests.
Identification of these risk factors is critical in order that intrahospital transport protocols and standards of care can be developed and implemented to maintain physiologic homeostasis during this period.
