By Dr. Stephen Colucciello


The Wild Man


A 40-year-old plaintiff’s attorney from the firm of Shady and Leach presents with a first time seizure.


Medics gave him several rounds of midazolam for agitation during transport and the patient arrives with the following vital signs: BP 185/110, P 135, T 101, R 25, PO 98% and blood glucose 145.
