CASE FOLLOW UP: Just a Fever…or not?

by on January 18, 2012

This is a follow up to the previous case, Just a Fever…or not?

The hospital staff initially believed the patient’s condition to be related to an acute cardiac event based on the fact that they had a previous EKG from the patient two years prior that was vastly different.

After labs and workup, the patient was released after being treated for cold/flu with fever.

A great example showing that the rule of always treating the patient, and not just the monitor, should be the standard!
