I was working the other night when we had a walk-in chest pain in his late 50s. He had been sleeping when he woke up to what he described as indigestion.
Turns out he was having a full blown MI. We got him shipped out to the cath lab quickly.
Found out later he had 6... yes... SIX lesions... three of which were 90% occluded!
He told me he hadn't been to the doctor in over 20 years. Not on any medications up to that point.
Poor guy couldn't be stented. Emergency CABG.
