As I wrote yesterday, from the perspective of the radiologist:
Collaborating with a cardiologist can at times be like collaborating with a rattlesnake.
Fortunately, MedPage Today has an article on what to do.
The bottom line?
- Suck the venom out
- Apply a tourniquet
- Apply ice
- Get to the hospital or clinic ASAP and ask for anti-venom (but be on the lookout for cardiologists of course.)
