So your patient said they were hypotensive but now their bp is fine. What are you supposed to do now? Do you just anchor on his or her bp meds as the cause of the hypotension?

We develop a critical differential based on the causes of shock and then we walk through the work up and the conundrum of whether to admit or dispo these patients.
