Tachycardi A Case Study

Decent Essays
A patient with symptoms including: slurred speech, 120 heart rate, respiratory rate of 24, diaphoretic and oxygen saturation level of 88%, requires an emergency response. Tachypnea with low oxygen levels may be helped by using oxygen, additionally calling a rapid response team is important in case the patient goes downhill quickly. To address tachycardia I would attach an EKG machine to the patient to assess the heart, will determine if the patient is having a heart attack. If the patient is conscious I would ask if they have any other symptoms they could tell me about. Additionally I would ask someone to call or find family members to get as much information as we could.
