Issues to discuss from patient encounters…………
A 68 year old man with diabetes and hypertension presented with a 3 year history of coarse resting tremors involving the R hand and arm. A CT scan showed an infarct in the R frontal lobe. Is the infarct in the right frontal lobe the cause of the coarse tremors?
A doctor wrote the discharge diagnosis of a patient like this: Decompensated CCF secondary to non compliance to fluid restriction. What does this diagnosis tell us about the heart disease in the patient?
An ECG was interpreted as: RBBB (partial). What finding in the ECG will justify such an interpretation?
