Internal Medicine – Day 15

Last few shifts have been pretty quiet. My patients have been pretty stable, but aren’t quite at the point where they can be discharged. Plus we haven’t really gotten many new ones. Of course though, close to the end of my day a new admit came in from the ED and I was overdue for a new one so I volunteered. Based on the sign-out we got it sound like a pretty straightforward case of angina secondary to coronary artery disease. After taking our own history, it sounded like things may be a little more serious than we thought, but perhaps only slightly and with marginally higher suspicion of something more insidious happening.

Over all, it sounds like a pretty “bread-and-butter” cases as I hear people say so so often, so I’m glad I’m able to take this one on from the very beginning.
