You’re looking at an interactive case study from Prognosis: Your Diagnosis (one of four distinct learning formats available in Clinical Odyssey). Try it out, and have fun improving your clinical skills.
A 48 year old woman presents with progressive dyspnea for 1 week. There was no cough or chest pain.
She was diagnosed with metastatic cancer of the right breast 1 year ago, for which a radical mastectomy was performed. She completed her 6th cycle of chemotherapy three months ago.
On admission, her oxygen saturation was 82%, which improved to 99% with high flow oxygen. A full blood count and chest x-ray are normal.
