To start at the beggining, he was going to his car All of a sudden he got a terrible pain in his chest It went down his left arm. After that he broke into a cold sweat. He became real nauseated. He had to lean against the car. He felt he might faint an minute. His wife saw this and came outside immediately.
  • 3.          He told her what happened. She went inside and called the family doctor. The doctor sent an ambulance over for him. The doctor met him in the emergency room. Did the pain feel as though there was something heavy pressing on his chest? Did the pain last for the entire period of time? Does he recall being short of breath? He honestly can’t remember. Has he ever had this happened before?

After that I broke into a cold sweat and became real nauseated. I had to lean against the car, because I felt I might faint any minute. My wife saw this and came outside immediately. I told her what happened. She then went inside and called our family doctor. He sent an ambulance over for me and met me in the emergency room and, well… here I am.

  • 7.          Has he ever had any heart trouble? Did he ever have rheumatic fever as a child? Did he ever had scarlet fever? I have his previous history here. He’s never been short of breath on exertion. He’s slept on one pillow all of his life. He’s never had swelling of the ankles. He’s never had toget up during the night to pass his water. Is all that correct?
  • 8.          Has he noiced any of these symptoms recently? Has he ever had any chest pain before? This is the first time. Is there any history of heart disease in his family. His father died of a heart attack. So did his uncle. He says he felt light-headed. Is that right? He didn’t actually experience unconsciouness? I’ll be back in a few minutes, and we’ll esamine him then.

  • 11.         The patient is doing just fine, considering what he had. What do you think he had? A myocardial infarction. I have to agree with that. Why don’t we go to the lounge and discuss the problem? Then we can come back and see him again. What did you find on the physical exam? There really wasn’t anything remarkable.
  • 12.         Does that surprise you? What conditionswould you think of in ruling out an MI? I would think of pulmonary embolus and cardiac neurosis. I would think of dissecting aneurysm and acute pericarditis. I would also consider hiatal hernia. He wasn’t in shock when I saw him. Nor was there any evidence that he was going into acutepulmonary edema. Would you expectto see fever at the onsetof his condition?
  • 13.    It’s usually absent at the onset. This is in contrast to acute pericarditis. It usually will risewithing 24 hours and remain about a week.
  • 14. Physician: Hello, Dr. English. How’s Mr. Scott doing? I: Just fine, considering what he had. Ph: What do you think he had? I: A myocardical infarction. Ph: I have to agree with that. Why don’t we go to the lounge and discuss the problem? Then we can come back and see Mr. Scott again. I: Fine. Ph: What did you find in the physical exam? I: There really wasn’t anything remarkable. Ph: Does that surprise you? I: No, not really.
  • 15. Ph: What conditions would you think of in ruling out an MI? I: Pulmonary embolus, cardiac neurosis, dissecting aneurysm, and acute pericarditis. Ph: That’s quite good. I would also consider hiatal hernia. He wasn’t in shock when I saw him, nor was there any evidence that he was going into acute pulmonary edema. Would you expecto to see fever at the onset of this condition? I: Yes, I would. Ph: It’s usually absent at the onset, in contrast to acute pericarditis. It usually will rise within 24 hours and remain about a week.
  • 16.             Have an y of his lab studies come back? Yes, they’re over here. Well, his white count is normal. This will probably go up tomorrow. It will probably stay up for about a week. Willyou please order another one for tomorrow? What would you expect the sed rate to show? That also goes up about the second day It will remain elevated for more than a week. Which one of these will reamin elevated longer? Has the cardiogram come up to the floor? Has it come up with the rest of his chart?
  • 17.           These waves look abnormal. His rate and rythm appear to be all right. What complications will you be looking for? What will you look for during his recovery period? I’ll look for congestive heart failure. I’ll look for pulmonary embolus. This would be secondry to phlebitis of the leg. I’ll look for arrhytmias and cerebrovascular accident. I’ll look for rupture of the heart and shock. What are the most common arrhytmias during this period?
  • 18.    Ventricular premature beats are the most common. Arterial fibrillation and prolonged A-V conduction are next. Let’s see him for a few minutes now.
  • 19. Physician: Have any of his lab students come back? Intern: Yes, they’re over there. Ph: Well, his white count is normal. This will probably go up tomorrow and stay up for about a week.

Here it is.
  • 20. Ph: Here is elevation of the ST segment and T-wave. And these waves look abnormal. His rate and rythm appear to be all rigth. What complications will you be looking for during his recovery period? I: Congestive heart failure; pulmonary embolus, secondary to phlebits or the leg; arrhytmias; cerebrovascular accident; rupture of the heart; and shock. Ph: What are the most common arrhytmias during this period? I: Ventricular premature beats are the most common. Atrial fibrilation and prolonged A-V conductions are next.
