CCS Acute Gout Attack

Step 1:keep foot elevated

Labs:cbc, sma7,Uric acid,Stool guaic, UA with microsynovial fluid :for light polarising micrograph.C&S,Gramstain,glucose,protein,cell count.

X-RAY JOINT.24 hour urine for UA

Diet:low purineMedication:Motrin PO or IndomethacinPo for 2 days,then hypouricemic therapy:Probenicid increase until UA level falls below 6.5..Allopuinol ,after attack.

symptomatic:Ranitidine bid. Meperidine or Vicodine

CCS Splenic Rupture
diagnosis : splenic hematoma

HPI 23 y/o male after MVA.

step 1 ABC, PE focusLabs:serum glucose and rapid bedside glucose determination, CBC, serum chemistries, amylase, LFT's, UA, coagulation studies, blood type and match, abg, blood ethanol, urine drug screens.

Bedside u/s, DPL(for unstable), CT(for stable) and emergent surgeon consult.Chest x-ray, supine & erect abdomen x-ray.

Vital Signs, Cardiac, and BP monitoring on bed side.

Foley catheter and Urine output check.

NPO, Ringer's lactate solution I.V before results from Lab.

Transfer to ICU if patient is not stable.

posted by raavii02good work up I would add surgical consult for repair also prefer NS as IVF rather than LR because in case he develops rhabdo. (MVA) NS is fluid of choice.

HPI: 45 yom brought to the ER with excruciating stabbing pain on chest/inner arm for 20 min. No history of previous attack, but hypertensive c BP 190/ 96 when last taken. He is conscious but looks anxious.

VS: temp-97, pulse-86/min,resp. rate-33/min,

Step I : Emergent management: A, B, C, D- O2, IV access

Step II : Focused PE: Heent/Neck, Chest/Lungs, Heart/Cv, Abdomen, Extremities

Step III : Diagnostics: EKG, CXR, CK-mb, Troponin-I, CBC, Chem ?7, Continuous cardiac monitoring, may be Tc99 scan also


1. NTG 0.4mg sl 2. Aspirin

3. Morphine if patient is in pain

4. ACE Inhibitor (onopril)

5. Depending on time since onset (if 3 h or less), consider t-PA if not contraindicated or cardiac cath.

6. Consider NTG drip. Other antihypertensive you may consider is labatelol or nipride( more severe cases).

Step IV: Changing pt?s location

1. Admit Pt. to CCU, if patient is symptomatic send to ward.

2. Repeat cardiac markers

3. D/C cardiac monitor after 24 hours if patient is stable

4. When stable, consider sub-maximal exercise test

5. All Pts. with MI should go home on B-blockers, ACE inh if the patient also has CCF and also low dose aspirin

6. Check lipid profile

7. Consult on healthy life style prior to discharge

8. Make appointment to see him in about a week

STEP V: Educate Pt?s family, Console patient, stop smoking, diet, excercise.

STEP VI: Final Diagnosis.AMI
