Previous Vaccinations:
Other Medications: per hospital list: Nitrostat 0.4 mg SL prn, famotidine 10 mg, ASA 81 mg, atorvastatin 20 mg, benazepril 5 mg, carvedilol dose unspecified
Current Illness: unknown; family report pt without symptoms prior to event
Preexisting Conditions: hx of gastric bypass; s/p CABG 3 years ago, HTN, HLD, morbid obesity
Allergies: none; + bee allergy listed in records
Diagnostic Lab Data: Patient had 3 EKGs, which did not show STEMI, but did show nonspecific conduction delay and sinus arrest with junctional escape vs sinus bradycardia (HR 50''s). Laboratory work done indicated that cardiac enzymes were normal, and that the patient had metabolic acidosis. Cardiology was called, but no need for emergent cath noted. Pt. has POCUS echocardiogram, which showed severe cardiomyopathy with LVEF 20%, and no pericardial effusion. Portable CXR read as: Extensive opacity in R upper lobe and diffuse opacities throughout the L hemithorax are nonspecific, but suggestive of multifocal pneumonia, including COVID-19. CTA Chest for PE w/ Contrast: Impression: no evidence of pulmonary embolism; bilateral extensive airspace consolidation, cannot exclude pneumonia, aspiration; follow-up barium series recommended to foreign body/filling defect in esophagus (Mediastinum findings: There is thickening involving esophagus and a small hiatal hernia. Gastric bypass surgery. There is dense artifact from the mid lumen of the esophagus measuring 8mm).
CDC Split Type:

Write-up: Patient received COVID 19 vaccine the morning of 1/18/21 at Public Health COVID-19 vaccine clinic. I (person completing this report) work for PH. Later that night while in bed, patient reported difficulty breathing to his wife, then turned blue, and became unresponsive. Family report pt was without any symptoms prior to event. 911 called; CPR started by family member 15 min. after pt became unresponsive. EMS performed resuscitation for about 30-40 minutes with multiple defibrillation for V-fib. Between EMS and Medical Center ER, pt had 9 rounds of epi, CPR w/ LUCAS machine, given 2 doses of amiodarone (150 mg and 300 mg). Patient had 3 EKGs, which did not show STEMI, but did show nonspecific conduction delay and sinus arrest with junctional escape vs sinus bradycardia (HR 50''s). Pt had return of spontaneous circulation. Pt intubated, and started on Levophed. Pt transferred to ICU, and had central line placed. Family decided to make patient DNR. Pt went into coarse VFib again, and as per wishes of family, code blue not called. Patient expired at 01:53 on 1/19/21.
