This week’s case-based question:
A 78-year-old morbidly obese female is brought to the ER in obvious distress. She is diaphoretic, anxious, and complaining of substernal chest pain. She was given oxygen as well as sublingual aspirin and nitroglycerin by the EMTs without much relief of her symptoms. She is now being hooked up to a monitored bed, and a phlebotomist is establishing wide vein access. Her BP is 160/90, HR 80, RR 22, T 36.5. She is saturating at 98% on 5L. She does not remember what medications she is taking. Her auscultation reveals regular rhythm, with no murmurs, rubs, or gallop. Lungs are clear. There is some bipedal edema, likely chronic. You obtain a 12-lead EKG, shown below.
You conclude she has:
nonspecific T/ST segment changes
lateral and inferior ischemia
