Basic Physician Training

Scenario = You are a medical registrar working an afterhours shift. You are called to review a renal patient (60yo) on the ward during a clinical review call for reduced urine output (PACE, RACE). You notice that their renal function has deteriorated significantly from baseline. The patient is also hyperkalaemic, clinically dry and an ABG reveals a high anion gap acidosis. He is also complaining of chest tightness and palpitations on further questioning. The patient has no advanced care directive in place and he is not previously on dialysis. Talk us through your management of this patient. (The interviewers then kept asking questions during your answer, like patient is now hypotensive, what would you do (ie: escalate to rapid response call/ICU involvement), what would you say to ICU when they arrive. Family has arrived, describe to us what you would say to them. How would you discuss the advanced care directive with the patient? What are your differentials?)
