Question and answer
PHYSICAL EXAMINATION: Preliminary survey is benign. Secondary survey: Alert and oriented X 3. Immobilized in a C-collar and long spine board. Head is normocephallic. There is no hemotympanum. Pupils
are equal. There is an abrasion under her chin. Trachea is midline. She does have a C-collar in place. Air entry is equal. Lungs are clear. Chest wall is nontender. Abdomen is soft. Pelvis is stable. Long bones are remarkable for an obvious open dislocation of the right ankle. The toes are all dusky, she has a strong posterior tibial pulse, and the nurse thinks she felt a faint dorsalis pedis. She has an abrasion under her left leg. HOSPITAL COURSE: We did give her a tetanus shot and 1 g of Ancef. I immediately gave her some parenteral Fentanyl and Versed, and we were able to reduce the dislocation without difficulty. Postreduction film looks surprisingly good. There is perhaps a subtle fracture noted only on the lateral projection. C-Spine shows some degenerative change, is of poor quality, but is negative; upon re-examination she is not tender in that area. However, it was done because she had such a severe distracting injury and given the mechanism. Chest x-ray and left femur look fine. ASSESSMENT: Level 3 trauma with an open right ankle dislocation, multiple abrasions. PLAN: Plan to call Dr. Almaz, who graciously agreed to assume care. The patient is kept n.p.o. What is the E code?
