One of the most common responses for EMS providers is the chief complaint of Shortness of Breath (SOB). In this session we discuss the challenges of obtaining a History of Present Illness (HPI) in a patient that potentially has one of three big differentials: COPD, Pulmonary Embolism, or Pneumonia. We will also briefly discuss what a BLS Provider should do when preparing these patients for ALS level care.
