NATIONAL CENTER FOR CASE STUDY TEACHING IN SCIENCE Page “I’ve Fallen Over and I Can’t Get Up” by Madern, Hood, Paul, & Stephens Part V – The Follow-up Visit Greg and his parents walked into the hospital and directly into Dr. Rose’s o ce. “How have you been over the past week, Greg?” “I’ve been okay, except I felt dizzy a few times.” “I remember you as a boy playing with Jack and passing out in the sandbox. Of course, that was before I went back to school and got my medical degree,” said Dr. Rose. e dizzy spells seem to be getting more frequent,” said Mrs. Myron. “Could it be because he has been stressed from missing school, getting into college, and getting a football scholarship?” “Stress?” said Greg. “How about coming to the hospital? I get light headed just being here.” ere was a knock on the o ce door and two nurses and an orderly entered with a table. “Great timing; I am glad you feel like that Greg. ere is one more test I would like you to take. Could you lie on the table facing up?” Greg clambered from the chair onto the table and the nurse attached sticky electrodes to measure his electrocardiogram; she attached a clip to his nger to monitor his heart beat. “Okay Greg,” said Dr. Rose. ”Move down the table so that your feet push against the plate at the bottom.” ey could all hear the beeping sound of Greg’s heart in the otherwise silent room. “Now, we are going to tilt the table so that you come to a standing position; don’t worry, the straps will prevent you from falling o the table. We’ll be able to monitor your heart rate and measure your blood pressure, if necessary.” e technician tilted the table. “Wow,” said Greg as the table began to move. e table continued to tilt and Greg’s heart monitor continued to sound at about the same rate. “Tell us if you feel faint,” said the doctor. “Oh boy, am I feeling dizzy,” said Greg as his eyes rolled back in his head and he passed out. e table was rotated back to the horizontal position again and locked in place. e nurse placed a cold cloth on Greg’s forehead and a pillow under his head as Greg came round. “Just lie there for a few minutes, Greg. You did great,” said the doctor.
