I was thinking it would be a 1 for the sensory and we don't really have the info for the arm if there was a drift and what that score was, just decreased grip. But the sensory would be a 1 on the scale.
We had a similar patient once, almost to every detail except he also had neck pain and trouble with deep breaths from the chest pain. 43 yrs old with no prior hx. I was working with one of my favorite residents and he was like Mi Vida, I almost wonder if he has a tamponade. He was like I wouldn't normally jump to that but take into consideration this is also your patient and you're a black cloud for nursing, and I am a black cloud for residents and well wouldn't you know the patient had a cardiac tamponade. Patient had been for the most part stable, I say most part because that condition isn't stable in itself as it can change quickly obviously. Resident grabbed the U/S and checked and called cardio and they thought he was absurd and said they will be down after CT results. By the time the patient got back from CT there was no longer time to wait for Cardio and I got to assist in the trauma bay with a pericardiocentesis. Not sure what caused it because patient denied any of the common things that would cause it. Plus he went to cath lab after the initial draining anyway and I am sure I had a stemi or O/D or DKA or all three come in right after per my normal shift and never had a chance to check.
