Case study

Mr Anthony Benson (70 years) is currently in the Medical Ward after being brought to the Emergency Department by ambulance last evening following two episodes of chest pain at home. In his admission notes it is reported that:

– each episode of chest pain lasted approximately 15 minutes.
– the first episode of chest pain occurred after eating a big bowl of creamy pasta for dinner.
– the second episode of pain occurred about an hour later while smoking a cigarette.
– Mr Benson orders Uber eats from the local takeaway shop at least three times a week as he has never learned how to cook.
– reports increasing frequency of pain in the last few weeks and describes the pain as an ‘indigestion type feeling.’

You are the Registered Nurse caring for Mr Benson on the ward.
Mr Benson tells you he has recently been commenced on Aspirin by his General Practitioner which he is supposed to take in the morning with breakfast. He admits to forgetting to take the Aspirin each morning and often will take double the amount to make up for the missed dose.

When you ask Mr Benson how he usually manages episodes of chest pain he replies The doctor gave me some tablets to put under my tongue but I read on the Dr Google site that they work quicker when they are swallowed so that is what I do. The tablets do not really help much though.
