    Here's this week's free sample question...

    A 27-year-old woman who is well known to the emergency department for her history of "panic attacks" presents to her usual emergency department after she recently returned from a flight.

    She describes chest pain, palpitations, and a feeling of difficulty catching her breath. She complains of left calf pain.

    She is currently taking oral contraceptives and occasionally smokes a cigarette to relieve her anxiety.

    On presentation, her heart rate is 108 beats/minute and pulse oximetry is 100% on room air.

    Her physical examination is grossly normal.

    Electrocardiography results are depicted below (see Figure).

    Answer Options:
    • administration of lorazepam or other intermediate duration benzodiazepine and discharge with reassurance that this episode is probably another "panic attack"

    • period of observation for resolution of current symptoms, if they resolve, then discharge to home, otherwise initiate more detailed workup.

    • D–dimer and/or computed tomography, pulmonary angiography

    • urinalysis to screen for drugs of abuse
