- A 22-year-old man with a history of ADHD and mood disorder has a seizure at home after taking extra quantities of his antidepressant with the intent to get high. An ECG on ED arrival reveals the following: HR, 150 bpm; QRS, 105 ms; QT, 290 ms; QTc, 375 ms.
- A 30-year old-man is "found down" with a suspected opioid overdose. A fentanyl screen in the ED is positive and a finger stick glucose reads ‘low.’
- A 77-year-old man drinks an unknown liquid from a sports drink bottle found in his garage and shortly thereafter experiences intractable vomiting. A point of care test done in the ED reveals the likely diagnosis.
