So my working clinical impression would be hypoglycaemia with possibly dehydration and an electrolyte imbalance. Reasoning for this is that the patient frusemide and metolazone are both diuretics are known to cause these problems. ECG does have a wide and bazar QRS complex with ? ? AV disassociation plus what looks to be peaked T…

My first thought was hyperkalemia. If the pt is stable, begin with Ca++ & bicarb. Consider albuterol. Serial 12-leads. Start toward PCI capable facility. If it is hyperkalemia, initial treatment should begin to improve pt's condition and there is no harm caused from the increased transport time. If there is an underlying MI as well,…
