Sometimes, when you're 10 hrs into a disastrous shift with abusive patients screaming and you haven't eaten and feel like death, all it takes is a caring senior giving you a bag of chips to remind you that we're all in this together.

All of our hospitals have been hit remarkably hard by the flu this season. Flu admissions are through the roof. Kudos to all the staff working so hard to help manage this incredible uphill battle!

Intra-aortic balloon pump in action. Inflates during diastole to increase coronary artery flow and deflates during systole to decrease afterload!

The biggest reason we MISS a diagnosis is because we MAKE a diagnosis. i.e. the diagnosis of a benign condition does not rule out the presence of a deadly condition. Always rule out the worst diagnoses first.

: majority of hyperK seen in ED are renal failure. But her renal function was relatively normal. In those cases, think of Addisonian crisis. Tx: dexamethasone (instead of hydrocortisone bc dex doesn't affect serum cortisol assay testing later).

And of course, right as you get in the room to see her after seeing this EKG, she goes into cardiac arrest. ACLS initiated, ROSC achieved after 3 minutes of downtime. The initial chem comes back: Na 124, K 8.4, BUN 28, Cr 1.2, glc 84, Ca 12.4. What's the dx?

You draw and send chem, LFT, CBC, UA and start IV fluids and antiemetics. Tech comes back with her EKG that shows sinus tach with peaked Ts! Now what do you do?
