  • Cardiovascular Care at a Critical Time

    05/26/2017

    Margaret Schaab was brought into the emergency room at Poinciana Medical Center on December 13, 2016 after calling 911 with chest pain and shortness of breath. Dr. Christopher Scott, who at the time was serving as Medical Director of Emergency Medical Services, immediately recognized Mrs. Schaab was in respiratory failure with an unusually high potassium reading and as a result, intubated her and administered cardiac protective medications to keep her heart from failing. Dr. Scott was able to save Mrs. Schaab's life by observing these changes in her breathing and high potassium reading just in the nick of time.
