Sounds like he developed septic complications. Incarcerated hernia which set off his body's immune system probably causing acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and multisystem organ failure. You always think this happens in the older patient with multiple co-morbidities, but can occur in younger healthy individuals. I once saw something similar in a patient admitted for a small abscess located within the wrist. The body's immune system goes overboard.
