Physical Examination and Workup
Upon physical examination, the patient is obese and noted to be drowsy. His vital signs reveal an oral temperature of 98.4°F, heart rate of 76 beats/min, blood pressure of 220/110 mm Hg, and respiratory rate of 12 breaths/min. His sclerae are anicteric, and his oropharynx is dry.
A funduscopic exam reveals retinal hemorrhages and exudates without papilledema (Figure 1).
Apart from drowsiness and somnolence causing altered mental status, the rest of his neurologic examination is nonfocal. Respiratory and cardiovascular examination findings are normal. The abdomen is soft and nontender.
A complete blood cell count and basic metabolic panel findings are obtained, with no significant findings.
An ECG is obtained (Figure 2).
