Question Description

Part IV

Mr. Smith is brought in by ambulance for complaints of unrelieved chest pain.

Patient:Mr. Smith

Age:56 years old

Chief Complaint:“My chest is hurting really bad and my nitroglycerin did not work this time. I feel like I can’t breathe and like I am going to pass out.” (He is pale and diaphoretic.) I took three NTG at home 5 minutes apart. When that didn’t work my wife called the ambulance.

Assessment: BP 182/90. HR 112. RR 26. T 98.6F. O2 sat 86% on RA. Weight: 280lbs (BMI 38 kg/m2).

12 lead: ST- segment elevation

PMH:Usually my chest pain goes away after I rest on my couch. But today, it started when I was just sitting around watching TV. I was already here in the hospital visiting a friend, and I only had one nitro with me. I took it but it didn’t help at all. It’s hurting so bad I can hardly talk. I feel like I can’t breathe. It starts in the middle of my chest, goes all the way down my arm, and even up my neck into my jaw. I am so scared.

The physician diagnosis Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS).

The ACS protocol is immediately initiated.

I: IV access
