It’s the middle of the afternoon when you are dispatched to the residence of a 59 year old male with a chief complaint of general illness.
When you arrive on scene you encounter a middle-aged man in obvious distress, lying on a couch. He is pale, gray, diaphoretic, and drowsy. He states that he has felt drained for the past 8 hrs—unable to catch his breath or get up off the couch—with a heavy sensation in his chest. 30 minutes prior to your arrival he vomited and felt like he was going to pass-out so he decided to call 911.
