Have you watched the last week’s episode of Chicago Med yet? If you still can’t get over it, here’s the newest entitled “White butterflies” that will surely hook you until the finale of this season. It starts off with Dr. Connor Rhodes visiting his girlfriend Dr. Robyn Charles. Everything seems fine except Dr. Rhodes feels that she’s locked up since her privileges are limited. Will Dr. Rhodes do something about this? We’ll see. On the other hand, a patient named Gary Foster is rushed to ED after being hit by a taxi. You’ll see how his case causes an argument between Dr. Choi and Nurse April. Meanwhile, Dr. Manning handles a teenage patient named Allison who is rushed to ED due to encephalitis. Dr Rhodes speaks with Dr. Reese about her girlfriend’s mental status. It seems he’s planning something that will probably affect Dr. Charles. Keoni who is Goodwin’s friend is brought to ED due to ankle pain. Something will be revealed about Sharon Goodwin because of Keoni’s diagnosis. Noah Sexton and Jeff Clarke will get their match but who will be matched at Chicago Med ED? Exciting, isn’t it?
CHARACTER TO WATCH OUT FOR:
- Keoni, a native Hawaiian, who is Sharon Goodwin’s friend. He is newly diagnosed with a condition that Sharon also has. What do you think it is? Let’s find out.
- 1. “Don’t underestimate the power of simple things.” When Dr. Rhodes visits Dr. Robyn Charles, she tells him how terrible her stay in the rehab is. She’s right when she says that simple things like shoe laces, belts etc. are not allowed because it can be used for suicide. In reality, rooms in rehabilitation for psychiatric patients are simple and plain. Everything is monitored especially the things that could harm the patients.
- “How to test for cervical spine injury?” When Gary Foster is rushed to ED after being plowed by a cab, Dr. Choi attends to him and he checks if Gary suffers from spinal injury. Dr. Choi is right when he instructs him to touch his chin to chest then turn his head from side to side. In this assessment, doctors can diagnose a cervical spine injury if a patient can’t move his head at all.
- “Diabetes can make your feet numb.” When Keoni is brought to hospital due to ankle pain, he doesn’t notice that he’s got a nail in his foot. In his case, he is diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus. He’s right when he says that DM can make his feet numb. In reality, diabetes can affect a person’s nerve. Nerve disorder called diabetic neuropathies is common in DM patients. People with diabetes can, over time, develop nerve damage throughout the body. Symptoms include pain, tingling, or numbness (loss of feeling) in hands, arms, feet, and legs (www.niddk.nih.gov).
- “Triazolam is date-rape drug.” When Dr. Manning and Dr. Halstead find out that Allison’s tox screen detected trace amounts of Triazolam in her blood, they suspect that Allison has been sedated. They are right when they say that this drug is a benzodiazepine, a sedative hypnotic drug used to treat patients with anxiety and severe insomnia. If this drug is given to a patient, he/she will be asleep and feel helpless and amnesic.
Everything seems right!
