    I love this kind of stuff, very interesting. I was thinking thyroid storm along with Rhab. Thanks for the presentation. It's great to see how other nurses think.

    This is really, really good. In my line of duty, we can almost always look closely at the link between how patient presents, and meds that may or may not have been taken appropriately--between BP meds and Lasix you can pretty much set your clock by some of the presentations.

    I spend lots of time educating on BP meds (no, by finishing the bottle last week doesn't mean you are cured) and Lasix (I know you don't want to pee every 5 minutes, yet, here we are...).

    Again, very cool and thanks for sharing!

    This was awesome.. took some time to really focus in to analyze the situation and possible scenarios but it was almost an adrenaline rush to find the right answer. Thanks! I look forward to more of these case studies!
