New Interactive Medical Case: Test Your Skills

Posted by • June 24th, 2015

Approximately 10 minutes after being stung on the right lower leg by a yellow jacket (a type of wasp), a 45-year-old man began to feel lightheaded and nauseated.  He called emergency medical services, and paramedics arrived 10 minutes later.  They found him to be alert but anxious, with scattered areas of erythema on his trunk and a small, localized area of tenderness, swelling and erythema at the site of the sting.  His blood pressure was 70/45 mm Hg, and his heart rate was 108 beats per minute.
