On arrival, patient denies chest pain but has a resp rate of 32 and a SaO2 of 82% on room air. After you receive handover from the ambulance o?cers, you do an assessment on Mr. Bilko.

The ED sta? specialist, Dr Lance, reviews the patient  and orders a chest x-ray. He reviews the ECG and notes no abnormalities. He inserts an IV cannula and takes blood. He orders IV ?uids which you commence. The patient  returns from radiology and Dr Lance diagnosis the patient with mild pulmonary oedema and admits him under Dr Turner.
