This exercise is designed to familiarize you with cases that will be presented in VCSN636. As you work through each case, consider the following:
At the end of each cardiac case you will be asked to specify your differential diagnosis, further diagnostics, and drug choice. Directions will be provided on how to print a case worksheet to include these items so that you may bring them to class for comparison to the clinician's diagnosis. As you work through the acid-base cases, you will use pH-bicarbonate graphs to determine the patient's base excess or deficit.
