Cardiac Surgery Patient Case
Our patient cases present a real-world patient scenario and accompanying learning activities.
Mrs Cynthia Yang, a 58year-old woman, was admitted yesterday for coronary artery by-pass surgery. Six weeks ago, the patient experienced crushing chest pain that radiated into their jaw and left arm and presented to the ED. The patient was diagnosed as myocardial infarction and discharged home five days later. After stabilising, and review by the cardiac surgeon four weeks ago, a decision for CABG surgery was made and the patient placed on a waiting list. The surgery was completed two days ago.
