A Clinical Guide
It was during my first clinical rotation of my medical school experience when I met Marilyn. She was a white woman in her 50’s who had come into the Emergency Department (ED) for the third time in the last 2 months complaining of severe abdominal pain. Her husband, a truck driver, was on the road frequently, and she had called an ambulance due to the severity of the pain.
