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 significant 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. Final Exam: This multiple choice exam is designed to test your knowledge of the material you just reviewed. You have two attempts to gain an 80% or higher on this exam. Please take your time and answer each question carefully.
