Abdo Pain Collapse Scenario

You are working as part of a double Paramedic crew when you are called to a 55-year-old male collapse with abdominal pain. On arrival of the property, you are shown into the living room where the patient is lying on the sofa cradling their abdomen. They seem in a lot of discomfort and are very pale and sweaty.

The patient’s wife explains that he has been passing blood in his stool for the past week but since this morning, a lot of dark blood has been coming out and he has been in a lot of pain. He had to lay down as he was feeling faint. He has had no history of trauma and is on Apixaban and Digoxin for his Atrial Fibrillation.
