This includes the patient’s demographics, chief concern, history of present illness, past medical history, family history, personal and social history and a complete review of systems (Ball, Dains, Flynn, Solomon, & Stewart, 2019). The goal is to establish rapport in order to provide education on a risk that is identified.The patient is a 60-year-old male that identifies himself as white but is of Lebanese descent. He is married with three children and says that he is a “businessman.” This history is obtained from the patient as he is considered a reliable historian.The chief concern for the patient is intermittent chest pain that he describes as “something squeezing my chest.” The pain began a few days ago and has become increasingly worse. The discomfort is mostly in his chest but sometimes will radiate to his left arm. The patient says that it intensifies with any type of exertion but is able to find some relief with extended periods of rest. Prior to these episodes, the patient would spend his mornings gardeningwithout any discomfort.The patient has a past medical history of hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diverticulitis, and acid reflux. His prior surgeries include a rhino-septoplasty and colonoscopy. He is currently prescribed lisinopril and atorvastatin daily but states he only “takes the medicine sometimes.”
