Source of history: Patient; patients son
Reliability: 70%; 70%
CHIEF COMPLAINT: Headache secondary to vehicular accident
Patient was apparently well until 2 days prior to admission when patient fell
from his motorcycle on his way to work. The patient states that he was driving
without helmet on at a moderate speed but slipped on a pile of sand on a curved
road which caused his motorcycle to glide. He fell right face first and lost his
consciousness for a few minutes. He sustained multiple abrasions, hematomas and
right clavicular fracture. He was rescued by his older brother who wanted to bring
him to the hospital, to which he refused. He asked to be brought home where he
rested and self-medicated with Mefenamic acid 500 mg 1 tablet twice a day which
provided temporary relief for right shoulder pain and headache which he rated 9/10
and 5/10 respectively. While at home, he experienced loss of appetite and was
increasingly drowsy.
9 hours prior to admission, patients wife noticed that his skin was cold and
clammy and his lips were cyanotic. Patient also complained worsening of headache;
this prompted his wife to bring him to the district hospital. He was requested chest
and cranial radiograph and CT-scan. Upon seeing the findings of the tests, the
attending physician immediately referred the patient to the regional hospital, hence
this admission.
