The ABC’S of being a student in the ED…..
The Wrong way…..
The Right Way…..
Patient is a 29 year old male who presents to the ED with left sided chest pressure that started 2 days ago. Pain gets worse upon exertion and improves with relaxationand denies personal and family hx of heart disease. Upon physical exam auscultation confirms bilateral rhonchi, patient confirms significant other and children had colds 1 week ago. I think that he has an upper respiratory infection and I would like to give him an albuterol treatment with pre and post peak-flow and get a chest x-ray to rule out pneumonia.
