Context: You are new in your placement as a foundation year doctor in an ED department of a tertiary regional specialist centre.
Four accident and emergency consultants are dealing with a major road traffic accident which is in the department. All six high dependency beds are in use, and there are three other ventilated patients in the department.
As a foundation year one doctor you are assigned the next ED case, a "blue light" ambulance bringing a chest pain patient into the department.
You will have the opportunity to make mistakes, and your management decisions will determine if this patient lives or dies..
