CASE: ‘Samuel’
Paramedics have been dispatched to a residential address at 03.47 hours for a 10 year old boy who has woken with extreme shortness of breath.
On arrival
The patient (Samuel) is sitting on his bed. Both parents are with Samuel and have been attempting to slow down his breathing and administer more Ventolin with limited success.
Samuel has a history of asthma and has been admitted to hospital twice before at the ages of 6 and 9 years old. Both admissions resulted in prolonged management of chest infections and associated severe asthma. Earlier in the evening he had taken both his preventative corticosteroid medication and his Ventolin inhaler which had limited effect in relieving the tightness in his chest.
He woke after fitful sleep at approximately 02.00 with increasing shortness of breath and pain down his left side of his chest.
Samuel has been complaining of discomfort down his left side for the last 10-12 hours.
The parents are worried that this may be another chest infection in conjunction with his asthma, but he does not appear to have any fever or productive cough. The parents state Samuel normally gets a fever and productive cough when he is fighting an infection. Any sign of colds or infection they treat early with the help of their local GP because of the increasing severity if left.

During WEEK ONE tutorialsyou will be given details of the experience and knowledge base of the crew attending this case and their provisional diagnosis e.g. the paramedics may be a combination of a recent graduate who is three months into their internship and a paramedic who has seven years’ experience.
The following questions will explore your explanation (with links to literature) regarding the decision process behind their diagnosis and treatment pathways.The explanation should reference the concepts of intuitive (or non-analytical) and analytical reasoning, bias in decision making and the differences regarding novice to expert practitioner and the effects this has on clinical decision making.

(200 words – provide at least two (2) references to literature regrading analytical reasoning)

Discuss the benefits and limitations of both forms of reasoning in relation to Samuel’s case. (200 words – provide at least two (2) references to literature regrading analytical reasoning)
Maximum mark

Refer to a least two factors from the following areas a) Level of knowledge and experience of the practitioner b) Patient presentation (clinical signs & symptoms) c) Safety & Harm – Clinical Outcomes d) Psychological / Social e) Environmental f) Operational / logistical Support why these factors ‘bound’ or constrain the decision making in this case with reference to literature (200 words – provide at least two (2) references to literature regrading factors that influence clinical reasoning)
