Just a heads up, Chicago Med will end its second season after two more episodes. Bad news, isn’t it? This latest episode entitled “Deliver us” starts off with Dr. Robin Charles having her initial psychiatric evaluation with the help of Dr. Sarah Reese. Is this a compliment for Dr. Reese or is it just Dr. Daniel Charles’ way of getting access to her daughter’s treatment?
Meanwhile, a 21-week pregnant named Gayle Parks is rushed to emergency department due to failing heart. This is a tough case for Dr. Rhodes since the baby will be at risk due to Mrs. Parks’ heart condition. On the other hand, a patient named Mr. Walker is assigned to Dr. Natalie Manning’s care. Something will be revealed about him that will affect Dr. Halstead’s relationship with his girlfriend.
Dr. Stohl and medical students including Noah Sexton are having interactions with patients to study their cases. Mr. Dayne is one of the patients being evaluated by students. He is admitted to hospital due to atrial fibrillation and has no history of heart disease. The goal of the students is to know when his arrhythmia started and Noah is having a hard time figuring out the answer since Mr. Dayne doesn’t give any answers. Will Noah impress Dr. Stohl? We’ll see.
CHARACTERS TO WATCH OUT FOR:
- Dr. Robyn Charles, daughter of Dr. Daniel Charles, who is being evaluated due to hallucinations. Will her father be a great help since he is a psychiatrist? Or will he make the situation worse?
- “X-ray is still safe for unborn baby.” When Dr. Rhodes orders an AP chest X-ray for Mrs. Parks, the latter refuses since radiation could harm her baby. Dr. Rhodes is right when he explains that the radiation will be minimal and the fetus will be protected by a lead apron. In reality, if you are pregnant, there’s very small possibility of harm to you and your unborn baby. Lead apron can help shield your reproductive organs thus preventing damage to your genes that could be passed on and preventing harmful effects to the fetus.
- “If he’s right, shocking the patient will return him to sinus rhythm. If he’s wrong, we may soon see the effects of an embolic stroke.” When Noah Sexton already knew when Mr. Dayne started to have atrial fibrillation, he began shocking the patient with electrical cardioversion. Dr. Stohl is right when he says that if an atrial fibrillation started less than 48 hours ago, cardioversion is needed and if it’s longer than 48 hours, shocking the patient could throw a dangerous embolus to brain. It’s true because if you have had it for less than 48 hours, your doctor might perform cardioversion right away. If atrial fibrillation has lasted for more than 48 hours, or you are not sure how long you have had it, cardioversion could cause a stroke. You will likely wait a few weeks before having the procedure. During this time, you will take an anticoagulant medicine to lower your risk of a stroke
- “When you’re pregnant, your heart is pumping for two.” Mrs.Parks’ daughter Leah asks Dr. Natalie Manning about the condition of her mother and if she’s going to die soon because of her pregnancy. Dr. Manning is right when she says that a your heart is pumping for two (for herself and for the baby) if you’re pregnant. In real life, the heart carried a heavy workload during pregnancy. Increasing blood supply is normal to provide the baby with blood needed to help them grow and develop (http://www.healthline.com/health/pregnancy/heart-palpitations).
