And try just cannot put their finger on it, what do you do? I have encountered patients like this and was told to never ignore it, because usually when patients think they are going to die, they do. Thankfully nothing has happened with these encounters. I try to get an idea of "what is wrong" but the patient doesn't know. Usually VS are WNL, might be a little tachy from anxiety or something. Upon assessment, everything just seems benign.
So what do you do?
