Carl a 54 years old male was brought to ER by ambulance following sudden onset of central chest pain. Carl was at home asleep when he was awoken by sudden onset of central chest pain. Carl woke his wife Tanya and stating he was in pain and felt nauseous and she noted he was also sweating profusely. Tanya called an ambulance and Carl was transported to the hospital.
Ambulance officer provided GTN sprayx2 whilst on route to the hospital. Upon examination in the ER Carl continued to complain of pain and was administered a further dose of GTN spray which relieved his chest pain. ECG showed anterior ST elevation. Carl was administered aspirin and bloods were sent to check troponin and creatine kinase (CK) level.
Carl was immediately sent to Angiography for an emergency Angiogram. Results from angiogram showed 95% occlusion to the right coronary artery (RCA). 90% occlusion to the left anterior descending coronary artery ( LAD) and 70% occlusion to the circumflex with distal disease.
Carl has been admitted to the medical/surgical ward post angiogram and is awaiting cardiothoracic review.

Carl is a 54 years old male admitted to the ward post angiogram. He presented to the emergency department in the early hours of the morning following sudden onset of chest pain. He has no previous cardiac history and this is the first presentation to the hospital with chest pain. Apparently his father died from myocardial infarction (MI) at the same age so he is very anxious.
Carl has a past medical history of type 2 diabetes and hypercholesterolaemia. According to his wife he is a poorly controlled diabetic and his BMI is over 33 kg/m2. He has no known drug allergies and is currently taking Metformin Glipizide and Simvastatin. He suffered a fracture jaw and fracture left femur as a teenager and had a left knee arthroscopy4years ago. Carl is a self-confessed workaholic and works as the chief financial officer for Brody wines.
Carls angiogram showed 95% occlusion to the right coronary artery (RCA). 90% occlusion to the left anterior descending coronary artery ( LAD) and 70% occlusion to the circumflex with distal disease. He is awaiting urgent cardiothoracic review. The team is delayed in the operating theatre currently. It is anticipated Carl will go onto the emergency operating theatre list for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) later today. He is now due half hourly observations for the next hour then hourly after that. He is due to rest in the bed for a further 2 and half hour.
He has IV access in-situ however no fluids are currently ordered. The cardiac team has requested repeated ECG and blood following angiogram which we have not done as yet.
Carl remains on the post angiography pathway and observation are as follows:
Respiratory rate 20
Chest pain 3/10
BGL 11.2 mmol
Insertion site ( left groin) dry no evidence of swelling or haematoma
Pedal pulse (left) present
Neurovascular observation left leg ( colour: pink- warmth: warm- movement: present and within normal limits- sensation: present and within normal limits).
Repeat ECG following angiogram
Repeat bloods following angiogram (Trop CCKAPTT)
Review by cardiothoracic team post angiogram.
