A 63-year-old man presents with worsening dyspnea for one day. Further questioning reveals that he has been 'feeling ill' since four days ago.

Eight days earlier, he fell off of a ladder and fractured two ribs on his right side. X-rays at the emergency department showed no evidence of pneumothorax, and he was subsequently sent home on analgesics.

An urgent ECG is found to be normal.
