The patient is a 65 year old, slim and athletic body male. He did not have diabetes or any health issues in the past. He was a little unwell for about last one week. He had a slight fever for about three to four days, following which he only had some cough without any fever for two days. He used some OTC cough syrup during the last two days. About 20 hours ago, he started developing some difficulty in breathing and was taken to a local hospital. An EEG suggested to the local doctor that he may have had a heart attack and was given some Heparin along with some antibiotic and moved to a bigger hospital. A few quick tests and a bit more revealed to the neurologist that the heart is not the issue. I just got to know that the newbie general physician prescribed some unwanted medications. I was informed by the nurse that the diagnosis was septic encephalopathy and bronchopneumonia. I managed to get a picture of the patient's current chart. All vitals are holding for the last 10 hours since his admission at the current hospital. The patient has been unconscious for the last 15 hours. The neurologist is unavailable for a few more hours. I have attached all the prescriptions and findings of the hospital visits since the first admission. Please let me know if this coma is deepening and whether I should request that the patient to be moved to an even better hospital.
