Nursing Reflection: How do you assist a patient who has increasing pain, please provide an example?
I did my placement at Royal Melbourne hospital and I attended a patient with cardiac chest pain. This condition is the most common presenting symptom of the coronary heart disease. During my placement, chest pains was something that I came to understand better. Its symptoms and different causes were evident with the patient I attended to. The patient was complaining of a sharp paining sourcing from the heart and spreading through the back.
