Medgeeks Clinical Review Podcast

Jun 21, 2018

Today, we have a 60 year old male patient, with a past medical history of:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • COPD
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Hypertension
  • Hyperlipidemia
  • Diverticulosis
  • Rectal cancer

Chief complaint: 1 day rectal bleeding (episodes every hour) causing them to spend the entire day in the bathroom.

The patient states he's had a similar episode like this years ago. Before we see the patient, we should be asking...

  • What is the trend of our patient blood pressure since arrival?
  • Is the patient actively bleeding?
  • Are they symptomatic (weak, dizzy, lightheaded, etc)?
  • What is the access?

We're going to walk through this patient's case together over on our podcast.
