A woman presents to the ER with chest pain. Is she having a heart attack or heartburn? In the premium lessons, you will hear the full evaluation of the patient’s chest pain. The doctor asks about the severity and timing of the pain, its relation to activity, radiation of the pain, associated symptoms, and more. You will also hear the doctor discuss how the chest pain will be treated and evaluated during the patient’s hospital stay. The premium lessons are interactive. We review the vocabulary and practice interpreting the key phrases into Spanish for both the evaluation and treatment of chest pain. You will also learn how to perform an EKG in Spanish.
