generally unwell…

The setting:

Busy Saturday morning shift. Lots on the go as usual…

You sit for a moment to catch up on your notes and review patient results…

A nurse hands you this ECG to sign-off saying, “this lady is generally unwell and has been drowsy & vomiting for 3 days. She doesn’t look well but doesn’t speak any English”…..

What’s your interpretation ?

There will be a 4-5 hour wait for her to be seen…

Where do we go from here ?? What do you do next ??

…. the conclusion can be found here –> generally unwell (part 2) …
