Cardiac Tamponade - The Original Kings of County

The Case: 60 yo M PMH metastatic lung cancer, HTN, DM, former smoker presents to the ED with acute onset shortness of breath. Vitals in triage revealed tachypnea and tachycardia. Initial work-up revealed low voltage on EKG, enlarged cardiac silhouette on chest x-ray, bedside ECHO with pericardial effusion without tamponade, and CTA with large left lobe mass and segmental pulmonary embolism. The patient was anticoagulated with heparin infusion. While boarding in CCT and awaiting a non emergent pericardial window, he became acutely dyspneic with elevated heart rate and subsequently asystolic. Pericardiocentesis was performed bedside with return of spontaneous circulation. The patient was brought to the OR for pericardial window and admitted to the ICU. A short while later the patient expired.

This unfolds across a lifetime, to the point where those who’ve experienced high levels of trauma are at triple the risk for heart disease and lung cancer.
